Recipe for the new economy

The Bay Area’s Arizmendi Bakery Association is one of the worker-owned businesses profiled in the documentary “Shift Change,” showing Monday, January 28, 7:30 p.m. at the Sebastiani Theatre. Sub-titled “True Stories of Dignified Jobs in Democratic Workplaces,” the film visits thriving cooperative businesses in the U.S. and Spain, sharing on-the-ground experiences, lessons, and observations from the front lines of the new economy.

At a time when many are disillusioned with big banks, big business, and growing inequity in the United States, filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin contend that employee ownership offers real solutions for workers and communities. Presented by the Praxis Peace Institute. $15. 476 First St. W. 939.2973.
