Do not pay attention to the ideology.
Just note the goings on. Employees taking over the running of factories when the owners have stopped running.
It cannot be as simple as Workers' World says because Workers' World is just imbeciles with stupidly extreme points of view.
But what the? Where are the owners? Are their client contracts still running by which the supply still has to be made? Are their suppliers still supplying? If so, who is paying them?
Caught a Naomi Klein piece in the recently about this Bruckman business. First I saw of it.
Hmmm. Warrants further investigation.
If the clients are still there and the suppliers are still in place, and the power is on and the workers are willing to keep it all going, presumably for less reward, where are the freakin' owners? Why shut up shop? What else is there to do? What benefit is there in stopping the thing that you do?
