Every day, as I read job offers, I keep wondering why anybody would put up with the abusive hiring practices and the minuscule pay some are offering.  I can understand that when you’re up against the wall and bill collectors are pounding on your door, you don’t have much choice.

Some employers know how to value their employees.  Clearly, others don’t.  I could never understand why employees put up with being exploited day in and day out when there is an alternative like worker owned cooperatives.  When workers own their own jobs, they have control.  Starting one should be a top priority for anyone who is either abused or can’t find employment in the traditional way.
