It’s a cliché that the younger generations are loathe to get involved. It’s also proving to be an inaccurate portrayal.
According to a recent Rewire report, younger people are embracing union membership and are actively participating in organizational drives.
“Millennials are incredibly adaptable, and people think of them as this sort of vague group, yet they are activists, and they’re incredibly sure of what they want,” the publication quoted a union official as saying.
The story cites a Gallup poll from last year that showed that 65 percent of 18 to 34-year-olds approve of labor unions, more than those in other age groups.
