The film examines employee-owned businesses that compete successfully in today's economy while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces and growing healthy communities. Visiting the 50-year old network of co-operative businesses in Mondragon, Spain---and many thriving examples of such businesses in the USA—SHIFT CHANGE shares the on-the-ground experiences, lessons and observations from the worker-owners on the front lines of the new economy.
