Argentine workers unite to revive failing businesses

Workers have joined forces to turn failing companies around, employing thousands in the wake of an economic crisis.

    Employees of some failed businesses in Argentina are turning their misfortunes around.
     
    Instead of trying to deal with the national economic crisis on their own, they are joining forces and creating cooperatives.
     
    These new ventures are now employing nearly 100,000 people.
