Report: More And More Millennials Want Unions

It’s no secret that millenials face unprecedented student loan debt, low salaries, and long hours.

That could be why millenials are flocking to unions in increasing numbers.

Quartz reports:

Despite the association of labor unions with depression-era steelworkers, membership is on the rise for people younger than age 35, according to data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were almost 400,000 more union members younger than age 35 in 2017 than there were in 2016.

The number of union members 35 or older, meanwhile, hasn’t changed much in the last five years.”
