What is a Worker Cooperative:


Echo is a Collective Board Worker Cooperative, which means the majority of employees at Echo are owners (we call them members) and they have a seat on the Board of Directors. Each member, even the founding members, have an equal vote, no matter how much they make or how long they have been involved!


There are three types of employees:


Non-Member Employees (Generally Seasonal) | $18.00/HR | Our non-member employees can work in any department and are either working to become a member, are seasonal or migratory, or just dont want to become a member. Non-member employees report to the managing member in charge of their department. They also have a seat on the Employee Advisory Board which has a representative on the Board of Directors.


Members (Usually Career, Sometimes Seasonal) | $22.00/HR | Members have undergone a 6 month canadicy period meaning they have worked for Echo for 6 months, submitted an approved application and paid the membership fee of $500.00. They are owners, receive dividends, and have a seat on the Board of Directors. Members report to the managing member in charge of their department.


Managing Members (Legit Career Mode) | $26.00/HR | Managing Members, or members that manage operations, departments or employees, have submitted an approved business/operations plan. These employees also have the opportunity to make passive income through the cooperative by offering rentals, retail or other services. Managing Members report to the General Manager.
