Hello! The Laboratory LLC is a Handmade Crafts Worker Cooperative focused on using locally made/found objects to create functional crafts for the people of Detroit! We are currently looking for talented, focused and innovative craft artisans who are interested in becoming a worker-owner of the cooperative. If this sounds like the coolest idea you've ever heard of, please contact us at thelaboratoryllc@gmail.com, facebook.com/thelaboratoryllc, or on twitter @LaboratoryLLC.

Here is a little more information on worker cooperatives:

Worker cooperatives are business entities that are owned and controlled by their members, the people who work in them. The two central characteristics of worker coopratives are: (1) workers invest in and own the business and (2) decision-making is democratic, generally adhering to the principle of one worker-one vote.

In a worker cooperative, workers own their jobs, and thus have not only a direct stake in the local environment but the power to decide to do business in a way that is sustainable for us all. The worker cooperative movement is increasingly recognized as part of the larger movement for sustainability. Worker cooperatives tend to create long-term stable jobs, sustainable business practices, and linkages among different parts of the social economy.
