    But the problem is that you always need dynamic managerial types to actually run the business, and cooperatives are subject to automation and outsourcing same as anyone.

    Who decides when it's necessary to lay off the janitor, or automate some process, etc?

    Inevitably, you get into situations where some part of the organization isn't pulling its weight, whether it's a person or a division or whatever. How does a worker cooperative deal with that?
