Schnack and Jackson introduce worker co-operatives to a broad constituency of the unemployed, underemployed, precarious workers, community organizations, women's groups, and church members. This is a practical guide that avoids the larger policy and philosophical debates about worker co-operatives.

Community Works Inc., which supports community enterprises has published this booklet by Ottawa consultants Kris Schnack and Ted Johnson. It includes extensive references and suggestions.
