Also, this is why worker cooperatives > consumer cooperatives. Consumer cooperatives would only strive to make the burger cheaper. They don't care at all about the well-being of workers.

Do you have any good reading to-hand about this? I've been talking about starting something for a few years now but the fear of trying to meet rent demands and falling into the "business-as-usual" trap puts me off even trying.

I've visited a handful of places that fit a model I like, but it seems the only way they have that freedom is through ownership of the property/land or surviving on donations (of labour and/or money).
