I have been a professional working with worker cooperatives for 15 years, and two of their most common challenges are the inability to balance mission with business savvy and failure to replicate. WAGES addresses both of these challenges head on in a spectacular way. It creates vibrant cooperative businesses that fulfill a strong environmental, social, gender, and racial justice mission. It also has replication built into its structure: expect to see green women-owned worker co-ops showing up in your region before long!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

cooperative circles, Latino community.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be busy looking for more board members.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the competence and passion of staff and other board members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

engaged, sincere, and focused on getting the mission accomplished.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make this country greener and more just by creating a HUGE network of green women-owned businesses.

Ways to make it better...

we all could have foreseen the economic crisis and planned for it.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

trying to nurture businesses in a difficult economy.

One thing I'd also say is that...

umm.... that's about it.

I'm proud to serve as a Board Member of this non-profit, which creates worker-owned eco-friendly home cleaning businesses in the Latina community. Being worker-owners has a huge impact on the personal and family income for the women involved, as well as reducing the health impacts (asthma, reproductive hazards, etc.) of cleaning chemicals by using the least toxic ones available. This is good for the women in the business, their clients -and- the environment, win-win all around.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...the impacts it has on the women in each of the WAGES cooperatives, their families and communities.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...expand the number of cooperatives it has by over 10x and provide hundreds more Green Jobs!!!

I have used Natural Homes Cleaning Cooperative that was started by WAGES. Through my involvement with them I have developed a greater understanding of the toxic effects of most house cleaning methods. I am so thankful for their environmentally friendly cleaning methods that are both wonderful cleaning work and safe for me and the environment
