Democracy Brewing – Line Cook

Worker-owned brewery and restaurant seeking a full time line cook. Democracy Brewing, a bustling worker-owned brewery and scratch kitchen in the heart of Boston, is currently seeking a motivated, professional, and career-minded line cook. As a worker cooperative after a year of full time employment you will be eligible for an ownership share – an opportunity to become a full equal partner in a democratic workplace. Becoming a worker-owner at Democracy Brewing includes profit sharing with the other worker-owners and a vote in decisions that affect the business.
