In this clip, US Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont shares his thoughts at the 2024 Employee Ownership Ideas Forum, including the reasoning behind his support for employee ownership and steps Congress is taking to expand ownership opportunities.

The Forum is hosted by the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program and the Rutgers Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing. Our 2024 Forum, “Employee Ownership on the Ground,” brought innovative employee share ownership initiatives and speakers from around the country to Washington DC to highlight how this bipartisan approach to improving jobs, wealth creation, and business performance is helping create more equitable economies in states, cities, and rural communities.
