The Industrial Commons’ mission

The Industrial Commons founds and scales employee-owned, social enterprises and industrial cooperatives, and supports frontline workers. The goal is to build a new southern working class that erases the inequities of generational poverty and builds an economy and future for all.

Founded in 2015, the organization is based in Morganton, North Carolina and is building a diverse working class based on locally rooted wealth and democracy in the workplace.
