The Employee Ownership Accelerator Campaign

The Employee Ownership Accelerator Campaign is a national call to action with a big goal:

2 million new employee-owners
across the field by 2026

Studies have demonstrated that employee-owners earn 33% more and have household net worth nearly twice as high as non-employee owners. Through employee ownership, workers of all income levels have the opportunity to acquire assets and increase their income. This is especially important for working-class and Black and Latino employees, who are often economically the hardest hit.

Join us in building long-term wealth for working people and Black and Latino families across the nation.

The U.S. economy is ready for a new direction to help employees of all income levels build economic security for the future: employee ownership. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the working poor made up almost half of the American workforce.

Through employee ownership, employees can build wealth and assets. Employee ownership has transformative effects on employee-owners by creating high-quality jobs that help families pay for basics like housing and healthcare, grow assets and build for the future.

Now is the time to dramatically expand the number of worker-owners in the US. That’s why, through the Employee Ownership Accelerator Campaign, we will broadly drive awareness of—and access to—employee ownership for 2 million American workers across the field by 2026. The benefits experienced by low-income employees and Black and Brown employees can be life-changing. You can be part of that change.

Together we can grow good jobs that make a difference

Proof has taught me to move through the food world with intentionality and accountability, not just in the kitchen but in the areas of service and our local community. I look forward to the new employee ownership collaboration that will elevate our voices, both individually and collectively.
