    yeah that other thread is hellafied EFFED

  3. My question: what does employee owned mean? If an owner of a restaurant occasionally waits tables but doesn't draw wages, is that employee owned?

  4. @stu My question: what does employee owned mean? If an owner of a restaurant occasionally waits tables but doesn't draw wages, is that employee owned?

    I've always understood it to mean that every employee holds an ownership stake in the business, however small it may be; but it's totally possible (likely?) that folks play fast and loose with the "employee-owned" term...

  5. I know of a restaurant that says they are employee owned because the managers and exec chef (who also works the kitchen) are the owners, having bought it from the more traditional owner recently. All of these owners do draw a salary for their work.

    I really don't care that much, but I'm interested in how people interpret it.

    employeed pwned

  7. @pitpat, Toby Ronnie employeed pwned

    yes.

  8. I worked at HyVee Grocery growing up which was and is supposedly 'employee owned.' I made minimum wage and never a cent more. Can't think of any additional benefits or privileges I got from being a part owner.

  9. Seem like the benefits are basically prorated "stock ownership options" which are essentially useless unless you retire with the company after many years.

  10. "worker-owned cooperatives" are another angle, less popular in the US (because socialism)

  11. Repost (ahem):
    Your favorite band is G Love & Special Sauce.
    What are you wearing right now?

  12. Reposted answer:

    Baggy corduroy, grey socks and a Kohl's henley. No underwear.

    But there are 6 hats hanging on my coat hooks.
