the Cheeseboard Collective





This is a place I' ve recently been in Berkeley, CA. It is a rare example of an non-hierarchical, anticapitalist, neohippie environment. They won' t sell you a coke but you can have a slice of vegetarian pizza while listening to a young group of the local jazz scene.

"We are a collective of about 30 members. Everyone who works at the Cheese Board is a member of the collective with equal decision making power. There is no boss, manager, or non-owner worker. Everyone makes the same hourly wage.Upon joining each member is given ten sharess worth $100/share. When a member leaves these shares are sold back to the corporation. All members are paid an equal hourly wage. Profits go to buy new equipment, raise wages, or are placed into our retirement fund. Moneys placed into this fund are distributed based on hours worked."
