In 1984, there were close to a half-million profit-sharing programs in the American business sector.13 Another retirement-related corporate benefit is the “employee stock ownership plan.”14 The number of these plans in the American business sector grew dramatically starting in the mid-1970s Training for Transformation: a Handbook for Community Workers: Book 2.
