Primary and secondary data for the study were collected and analyzed using oral interview, structured questionnaire and presented in tables using percentages.

Analysis of data collected revealed that ANAMMCO multi-purpose co-operative society has been of great benefits to it’s members. Through the co-operative, members obtain loans at low interest rates to meet up with their needs, buy goods at cheaper prices from the bulk purchase made by the association, save part of their income through the association, have a share in the profits generated by the co-operatives and get necessary encouragement in other self- help projects.

Management do not interfere with the activities of the co-operative society. It however, suggested that proper education training should be given to members and non-members by the appropriate authorities. This will help to create necessary awareness, and ensure the contained existence of the co-operative with the attraction of more members.

1.0 Introduction

1.1 Background Of The Study

The modern co-operative movement being in England during the first part of the 19th century. There were many years of experimentation, and many failed attempts, before successful cooperative was established. The turning point came in 1844, when the first successful cooperative called the Rochdale society of equitable pioneer, was established in Rochdale City, an individual town close to Manchester.

Okonkwo (1989,6) describe the cooperatives movement as “an invention of necessity originating from the evils of the industrial revolution” the device exploited by the suffering working classes of the industrial revolution to alleviate their pitiable condition.

It is a fact that the Rochdale Pioneers organized their society in the day of the industrial Revolution 1750 – 1850, when factory owners or capitalists exploited workers bitterly in order to maximize profits. Workers retaliated with violence and strikes. Unemployment was high life-wages were extremely low, often below subsistence level. Wages were so low that child labour was common, children working to supplement the income of their parents. Workers had to survive on a weekly wage of six pence. Skilled workers may be paid two shilling a week. Life was hard that the decade become known as “the Hungry Forties”.

During this Hungry 40’s shop keepers on their own part make profits through adulteration of goods they sold.
Workers hired in over crowded shanties under the most in sanitary conditions. They worked for more than (12) hours a day in ill-ventilated factory buildings design to look like prison houses and under conditions they were close to slave labour.

The anti-social effect of the industrial revolution resulted in widespread poverty and destitution described as “Pauperism”. With many depending on charity, while others died of malnutrition diseases and starvation.
In this respect, notable people like Robert Owen in England, William King, Charles Fouries, Lonis Blan both of France and Ernest Bader. These were the great Pioneers of industrial cooperatives in the world. Most of them were factory owners who formed at capitalism turn their factories into co-operative organization to enhance the quality and working relationship of both the employers and employees.

Industrial employees were most at times converted in to co-operative members and asked establish cooperative communities to fine together, work together share together, and help one another.

The aim of these great pioneers was to totally eliminate the exploitation of the workers by owners of capital and to permit the workers to reap fully the fruits of his or their labour. That is why co-operatives are reap fully the fruit of his or their labour.

That is why co-operatives are regarded as a weapon to fight capitalism diversify the economy of a nation.
All over the world workers are known to have had long history of exploitation. From their employers and the business as community, under the capitalistic society, as the saying have it that necessity is the mother of invention workers then with the motivation of some social reformers.

Notable Robert Owen (1771-1858) and Dr william king (1786-1865) had no choice other than to co-operate in order to protect themselves, therefore, co-operative society can be regarded as the weapon to oppress an economic system.

In the above basis, co-operative movement was inspired by the following deals which include self help, self reliance, self independence, eliminates of exploitative middlemen. Equality, fairness service, justice and equity or economic relations. Onuoha (1986).

1.2 Statement Of Problem

Workers in a typical industrial company are often required to carryout routinized work for a long period.
With the aim of achieving a certain production target everyday. The workers salary are often not regular and some of them may have no other alternative other than to seek for services of extortionist money lenders at cut the root rate of interest just to make ends meet.

Also the relationship between the workers and the management is more or less official with little or no room for other personals of the workers. The employees of such an organization have no choice other than funding a means for better interaction among themselves.

In this light, it is believed that ANAMMCO being an industrial establishment/manufacturing company the employees must be facing similar problems as portrayed above, if so then they must be contributing significantly to the economic well-being of its members.

1.3 Objective Of The Study

The main objective of this research work is to critically analyze the impact of co-operative business towards industrial workers. A case study of ANAMMCO, multi-purpose cooperative society ltd Enugu.

The specific objectives are to find out

  1. If Anammco workers in line with other similar establishments operate any kind of co-operatives
  2. The objective of such co-operative society
  3. The existence of such association in the establishment (ANAMMCO).

1.4 Statement Of Hypothesis

As a guiding principle to achieve the aims already stated, and basis for empirical judgment to establish that action is not without purpose, it becomes imperative to have hypothetical statement which is to accept or reject at the conclusion, of this research.

  1. Ho! The impact of cooperative business towards industrial workers is not recognized in the industry.
    Hi, The impact of cooperative business towards industrial workers is recognized in the industry
  2. Ho! The actions of cooperative societies influence industrial workers Negatively.
    Hi! The actions of cooperatives societies influence industrial workers positively.
  3. Ho! Adequate training is of no use to industrial workers.
    Hi! Adequate training is very useful to the industrial workers.

1.6 Significance Of The Study

A co-operative is a voluntary organization formed primarily to serve the interest of members. This interest is usually economic and in addition at times, social in the first instance, people must be socially linked by circumstance, such as same work place which makes it a fertile ground for group formation to thrive.
Our interest is to examine how the existences of multi-purpose co-operative in the company contribute to the economic well being of their members. The findings of this research work believed, will be a useful guide to the employees of other companies, who are contemplating forming an organizational stand to benefit from the findings.

1.7 Scope Of The Study

The broad topic of this project is on the impact of co-operative society to the over all well- being of industrial workers, the main focus however is on ANAMMCO multi- purpose co-operative society.
As multi-purpose co-operative society” by definition involve engagement in more than one activities engaged by the ANAMMCO multi cover all the activities engaged by the ANAMMCO multi-purpose co-operative society ltd.

1.8 Limitation Of The Study

Research work by its nature requires finance in other words, money is required to gather relevant reference materials, type the completed works as well as to meet – up with other contingencies. As a student the required amount, may be hard to come by.

Another limiting factor is likely to be time. Time is very essential in any research work. The more the project, the more likely some vital information could be left out, because of the rush to meet up with the time schedule.
The third and perhaps the major limitation is the attitude of the respondents workers especially those working in a big company such as ANAMMCO, from the work ethics are not always free with information.

In other words, it may not be easy to elicit the necessary information from the members of the society, especially within the work environment.

All these factors have been taken into full consideration there possible negative effects not with standing, the research would be dutifully carried out to meet up with required standards.

How to nail it on the head during your project defence

You are through with writing that project. Now what?

You have found yourself at that point where you have to defend what you have written. Of course you have to stand in front of your supervisor and other literary personalities to prove that you know what you wrote in your project paper. Unfortunately, the more you think about it, the more it looks like you are about to face a legion. It is not a war. But the emotion of dread welling up inside of you makes it look like one. So now you are asking yourself questions.

  • How am I going to start?
  • I hope I will do well enough to get an A.

You really want to nail it, but you need to come to terms with exactly how to get everything in perfect control. Especially your emotions of fear that seem to make a wreck of you every time you think about public speaking.
So here is the deal. I want to help you avoid that feeling that would ruin your precious moment if you dare to let it. And we are going to do it together.

I am going to highlight some very important tips to help you get in control for you to be comfortable enough to move from that feeling of DREAD to CONFIDENT; and making an awesome Impression for that great rating your supervisors should be giving to you so freely.

Consider these tips as you prepare for your defence. We will be taking them one after the other so here we go.

Watch Your Body Language And Keep It Confident:

Can you tell that a person is falling apart if they look confident? … If I can second guess you rightly, am sure you answered no to that question. Remind yourself that you need to come out that way. Now this might seem like a huge big deal when you are dealing with the foreboding. Maintaining a poise of confidence is very important. So find your most comfortable position, sitting or standing and draw up your body. You must exude confidence. It is something you need to do for yourself. People can only see what you allow your body language to show. So you must endeavour to put that out. Remember the story of David and Goliath? … At the end of your defence day, you want to be David.

Dress In Your Most Comfortable And Impressive:

Am sure this one is a no brainer. However I must highlight that you choose comfortable pieces. You don’t want to look so good and yet look like you were forced to wear something that does not belong to you. It’s great to ensure that as impressive as your clothes are on you, that they are also very comfortable.

Speak With Authority:

Going hand to hand with that aura of confidence is your most powerful asset:your words. If you look that confident, your words must not come out like whimpers. To be able to pull this off, you definitely need to speak as deliberately as possible in expressing yourself. Let them also hear what they see.

Use, Your Gestures:

I have often found this to come to my rescue in dealing with shyness and conveying my confidence. Usually it gives you an edge to also drive home your point. You must, however, ensure that you do not over use it. It doesn’t mean that your hands should be flying all over the place. That would be absolutely unnecessary. If you do this well, after a while you will realize that you are not as self-conscious as you used to be at the very start. For most situations, it would have completely disappeared altogether; leaving a really confident you talking.

Have A Good Opening And Closing Line:

Make sure you have perfected a good opening line. You should also be armed with a good closing line too. Try and rehearse it to a friend. If for the first time you presented it, your friend does not say “wow, that’s beautiful” or something like that; just know you need to keep refining it until you get the perfect line. Both opening and closing lines will go a long way in how impressed your panel gets to rate you high.

Make Sure You Know Your Work:

Certainly you should understand how important it is to know your own work from start to finish. Not having in-depth knowledge of your own work is tantamount to a suicide mission. Why should you kill yourself?
When all is said and done, this is what you came to defend in the first place. You should know your work from A to Z.

Prepare For The Questions:

Now this part is truly essential. You must be sure you do not floor all the good work you did on your presentation by not answering correctly. You must pay attention to the questions you are asked to be sure you will give the right answer. Many people get it wrong at this stage and spoil their good presentation. When you do not understand any question do endeavour to ask the person to expatiate what they mean before you answer.

These tips are by no means exhaustive, but applying these tips will give you some necessary advantage you need for a great outcome. Of course that outcome would mean that you eventually earn all your points on this project.
