Then you are not a business owner.

Then I'm afraid you'll get few replies. Most users of this site aren't very rich, and cooperatives by definition often don't have owners.

Being a business owner doesn't make you rich.

Refer to 'cooperatives by definition don't have owners'. Most communists would likely found a cooperative, and thus not own it, discounting them from your question as you discounted me.

You assume too much about your comrades. I didn't ask about co-ops and you're spamming at this point.

You asked about business owners, and members of coops own it together. If you ask a question about business owners but discount one form of business owner, you won't get answers in the first place.

They're not business owners in any way.

If they own it together, they're business owners. Or are all shareholders of corporations 'not businessowners', even if majority?

They would be shareholders, not owners.

Unless they own the majority of shares like the Murdochs, which wouldn't happen with a co-op.
