Get Paid What You Deserve

The idea behind a worker-owned cooperative is that value created by labor flows back to the workers. We have a Basic Wage Rate of $15 per hour that applies across the cooperative. Most of our work pays $20 per hour or more.

After paying wages, taxes, and the other expenses of the cooperative, net income is allocated to the members based on patronage.

Flexible Scheduling

Our cooperative is a 2018 Best for the World Honoree!

Members and non-member employees of the cooperative decide their own work schedules in coordination with clients and subsidiary Managers. Our cooperative offers you the support to take on any work that appeals to you, so it's usually possible to align a job within the cooperative with other employment, family obligations, or a busy social life. Our standard for full-time employment is 30 hours per week.

Anyone may take unpaid leave for family time, to volunteer, or whenever life calls. We're able to continue most benefits for up to two months during unpaid leave, and some can be continued for longer.
