Breathing Economic Democracy

Reflections from a Post Wage-Slave Economy

What does the future of labor hold? Join us!

Hosted by the Museum of Capitalism, this special pop-up teach-in will provide a space to envision what the future of labor looks like after capitalism. What do labor relations look like when workers have taken control of capital and the means of production? What issues would dominate the conversations of workers and communities? What mechanisms and tipping points could potentially lead to this future? And are there spaces of this post-capitalist economy in our midst?  

Please join us as we join in conversation with labor leaders working at the national, state, and local levels building structures and tipping points toward a more cooperative, just economy. Panelists include:

  • Daniella Preisler: Worker-Owner, Home Green Home; Coop Development Consultant, Prospera

  • Paul Bissember: Organizer, Labor Rising; Field Representative, UCAFT Local 1474

  • Esteban Kelly: Executive Director, US Federation of Worker Cooperatives; Worker-Owner, AORTA Collective

  • Adrionna Fike: Worker-Owner, Mandela Foods Cooperative; Board Member, Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives 

Museum of CapitalismMORE INFO ABOUT THE MUSEUM OF CAPITALISM: This temporary exhibition takes a look back on capitalism as a historical phenomenon from the perspective of a future society. It is an invitation for museum goers to inhabit an imaginary future in order to better recognize the historical specificity, idiosyncrasy, and contingency of the present.
