The Big Carrot grew from 9 founding members back in 1983 to currently over 70 worker owners in 2012. The Big Carrot is run the same democratic way it was 29 years ago. Full time staff are eligible to join our co-op after one full year of employment before being voted into membership. After an initial investment is made (the amount hasn't changed since 1983) and a $1.00 for a voting share, the member may then participate in committee work and attend membership meetings to discuss store policies, capital expenditures, voting in new members and general business operations. 70% of annual profits are shared by the members based on the amount of labour hours worked. The rest goes back into the business with a percentage donated to other worker-co-ops, sustainable agriculture and the community. If a member decides to leave the co-op, they receive their initial investment back as well as any outstanding labour dividends that they have accumulated. No member, at any time, may receive a portion of the net worth of the company.
