From our friends at the New York City Network of Worker Cooperatives posted this call to action, especially for NYC residents:
If you support worker coops, call in to City Council on the week of June 8 [through the 12th]! Let them know that you support enhancement of the NYC Worker Cooperative Business Development Initiative to $2.34M for the creation of 29 new worker-owned businesses, 295 new democratic jobs, and continued assistance to existing worker-owned firms.
You can call anytime during the week of June 8 – 12, at your convenience. Many thanks to Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies for preparing this phone script and list of Council Member phone numbers.
We’re gonna win,
