Will Millennials Come Back to Labor?
Posted On: May 02, 2013

May 2, 2013 | LABOR MOVEMENT | Somewhere between the hate propaganda promoting the "dangers" of joining labor unions (including bringing us a weekend and the 40-hour work week), and outsourcing millions of jobs overseas, the millennial generation has been raised to turn our backs on labor, and pray for a job at Google where we might be able to get fair working standards like a free bowl of Cap'n Crunch or a bike share program. Let's face it. The average millennial will have 7 jobs before they turn 26, if they can find a job at all.
