The film by Michael Moore, Capitalism: A Love Story, features United States FWC members Isthmus Engineering and Alvarado Street Bakery as examples of economic solutions.  Look for the section on worker co-operatives when you see the movie.   The DVD (released in late 2009) and Netflix extras include discussion of co-ops by Canadian Tom Webb (founder of the St. Mary’s Co-operative Management Education program based in Halifax, NS), and the Union Cab Worker Co-op.
