After spending several years in prison for his crimes, Anthony Weiner started his own glass business in Brooklyn, New York. The company, which is called IceStone, creates glass countertops using pieces of broken glass, according to the New York Post. “One of the amazing things about IceStone countertops, is that since people throw away all kinds of glass, there is almost an unlimited array of different colors we can use in our recycled glass creations,” said Weiner of the product. It seems the gig started for the former politician in 2020.
Come 2021, his time with the company had come to a close. According to the Daily Mail, the company runs as a worker’s cooperative. This means that the role of a CEO isn’t necessary. Weiner took to LinkedIn to share that the company would be owned by the workers and he was no longer involved in the operation. In the post, he shared, “Being a worker’s cooperative is exactly how it sounds -– a company that is managed from the factory floor up and not the top down. It gives each employee a voice in policy and practices; a stake in the progress; and a share of the gains.”
For now, the company is being managed by its owners, Dal LaMagna and Lisa Bowen, who shared that Weiner was brought in to help them. It seems he did what he was there to do and stepped down when the job was done.
