The legislature hereby finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to promote the creation of worker cooperatives. Worker cooperatives provide a means by which enterprises may be democratically controlled and operated by their own workers. It is expected that such cooperative ownership will result in increased job satisfaction and increased productivity and will enable workers to receive the fullest economic benefits from their endeavors. It is also expected that the establishment of cooperatives under this article will result in the creation of new jobs in all economic sectors, will offer greater economic stability in the communities of this state and will discourage the movement of capital and jobs out of this state.
