Worker co-ops in Cleveland to build wealth for inner-city residents
A group of Cleveland non-profits is backing a socially-conscious, eco-development in an inner-city neighborhood. They hope the environmentally-friendly workers cooperative will help build wealth for impoverished residents. Evergreen Laundry is the first of of several cooperative ventures envisioned for the University Circle neighborhood.
