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. Perhaps the reason why millennials switch jobs so frequently is because we are unhappy with the benefits, treatment and lack of respect due to our age in the workplace. Something needs to change, and it could start with a massive movement of currently employed young people joining unions. Full story here.
