"What if employees owned the companies they worked for? Our series Work in Progress looks at employee ownership trusts and worker-owned co-operatives, with experts Jon Shell, managing director of Social Capital Partners; and Marcelo Vieta, an associate professor at the University of Toronto. Philip Diceanu, co-owner of food manufacturing company Henry's Tempeh; and Heather Payne, CEO of Juno College of Technology, also tell us why they want to hand ownership to their staff." https://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-april-25-2022-1.6429884/monday-april-25-2022-full-transcript-1.6430863
