Shift Change: Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young: – This 70-minute documentary moves nicely between the largest and most thriving coop in the world, the 50 year old Mondragon experiment, and smaller cooperatives in the United States. Skeptics say that coops are largely limited to the food industry such as bakeries, restaurants or farms and further they cater to middle and upper middle class neighborhoods. Shift change shows how WAGES has organized domestic workers into a coop. It also films engineers in Wisconsin collectively creating and manufacturing doors for large buildings.
