On this edition of Independent Sources, worker cooperatives provide opportunities for immigrant women to be business owners and to secure better wages. A local activist group called: The Yes Men holds big business accountable through parodies ad campaigns. We profile a Korean American man who's turned his mother's secret recipe for Kimchi into a business. Then we get a taste of the seasons when we visit a Coquito, "Puerto-Rican eggnog"-making party.
