Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Claiming control of work and wage requires a radical imagination.


I’m much happier than many of my friends who work in banks and have loads of money, because they don’t have time, and they don’t have freedom, and they don’t have ownership, and they don’t have control. I think we need to bring in a new narrative around fulfillment and what we’re doing it all for.

Youth labor advocate Rhiannon Colvin lays out an alternate future of employment, where cooperatives return democracy to the workplace, and new social structures emerge from neoliberalism’s wreckage.

Rhiannon’s writing Crisis as opportunity: re-imagining the future of work appears as a chapter in the book Resist! Against a Precarious Future.
