In Nevada cohousing we pay $25 an hour for the hours we don’t work. It should be mandatory but it’s not. We have to pay taxes. Likewise the community needs money to run itself. If you can’t or won’t pay or do your share shouldn’t you not be living in a cooperative community. It’s an obligation like paying your PG & E bill. I know you can’t make people work or pay but there can be a person who talks to folks about it when they neglect their responsibility. R.

There's been some mention on the 'inappropriate behavior' thread about participation and workshare conversations, and Muriel just posted that they have a 'workshare tracker' role, which intrigues me, and I'd like to hear more about! I know this topic has been discussed more times here than is countable, but I'm interested in how the subject of workshare is broached, who does it, and what has been found to be a manner that can be heard. I'm also interested in infrastructure such as a workshare tracker, and the systems many of you have in place for tracking. Has it ever been deemed an option to add to CoHo fees, or for some monetary exchange? (and yes I know this delves into issues around equity and privilege) Do people pay others to do their chores? Find 'exchange of service' options? What about for people who are aging and/or disabled- particularly in communities weighted age-wise toward the older end where there may be a growing number of people whose capacity is diminishing? What about meal-cooking share for those of you who have a requirement around sharing cooking duties for community meals? I realize this is probably too many questions in one email, but interested in how other Cohos are navigating this. -- Chris Hansen 32 East Village Drive Burlington Vermont 05401 USA Ph 603 3988730 _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://L.cohousing.org/info
