THE CENTER FOR
The Center for Community-Based Enterprise’s mission is to build a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive living-wage local economy, by developing a network of worker-owned cooperatives in Detroit and throughout our great state of Michigan. This is because worker ownership, or employee ownership, has the worker and the business' sustainability at its center, not just profit. For the community, worker ownership increases local spending and civic engagement. For the business, it increases productivity and growth. It helps job creators to lower worker turnover and leave a lasting legacy in their community.
