For those of you that do residential house cleaning, what are your thoughts / opinions on cleaning co-operatives such as this (see link)? Their prices are posted as well. Their local Yelp listing shows 37 reviews & a 4-1/2 start rating. I came across another similar organization based in California a number of months back.
The gist of what they do (excerpt from their 'About Us' page) follows:
"Si Se Puede! Women's Cooperative, We Can Do It! Inc. was founded in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, in August, 2006, to bring together immigrant women to create a women-run, women-owned, eco-friendly housecleaning business. The cooperative is designed to create living wage jobs that will be done in a safe and healthy environment, as well as to providesocial supports and educational opportunities for our members.
We have 51 members, all of whom have completed a probationary training. All of the members whom are all immigrants, have an equal voice in decisions regarding policies and operations. In addition, members work together to promote the business and meet bi-weekly for on-going training and support.
The 14 founding members chose the name Si Se Puede! Women's Cooperative, We Can Do It! Inc. because we feel that it embodies the spirit of the group. Si Se Puede also has resonance for many of our members as the phrase is often heard in political and social change movements throughout Central and South America."
