Do you feel concerned about the political climate?
Do you want to be a part of a solution that has support across party lines?
Baby boomers own 60 percent of all U.S. businesses, and as they begin to retire, RMEOC sees the opportunity for employees to become owners. Employee ownership spreads equity so that all employees benefit from a business’s success, not just a few investors. We believe that now is the time—in Colorado and across the U.S.—for employee ownership to become mainstream.
We are excited to announce that RMEOC currently has a bill under consideration by the Colorado State Legislature, and we need your help in getting it through!
Join RMEOC on March 6, 2017 for a Day at the Capitol as we educate policy-makers about employee ownership.
