Working Assets is a corporation in the United States founded in 1985 by Peter Barnes.[1]

Working Assets' first product was the Better World Credit Card. After the United States deregulated telephone service, the company introduced Working Assets Long Distance in 1991. In 2000, it also became a mobile virtual network operator, operating as Working Assets Wireless. The company renamed this division to CREDO Mobile in November 2007. In May 2006, Working Assets Publishing launched[2] with the release of Glenn Greenwald's book, How Would a Patriot Act?

Since its inception, Working Assets has raised more than $83 million for progressive nonprofit organizations such as Greenpeace, Planned Parenthood, and news site Democracy Now! and partnered with other organizations on projects such as Leave My Child Alone, with Mainstreet Moms and Acorn.
