Arizmendi: Inside a Thriving Bakery

What happens when bakers can’t afford to live in San Francisco? How is a worker-owned cooperative managed? Is food a luxury?

The idealists and hardworking bakers at the Mission-based Arizmendi Bakery discuss their views on these questions, along with their joys and concerns, in this original Mission Local video.

    Love Arizmendi.

    When conditions improve for people, we all win in the end.

      Win? Who are we? Why is this a contest? And who are you trying to defeat?

        Workers, Sam/John, workers. (Funny how bypassing bosses and corporate exploitation makes you so nervous.)

        • Sam

          We all work. It’s just that some are more successful at it than others.

          Personally I could not go through life classifying people into “us” and “them” and then spreading hate about “them”. Very unhealthy, it sounds.
