New research shows that more young people view unions favorably, including even millennials who are conservative on political issues. It’s a promising trend that bodes well for the future if young people look to improve their conditions by organizing.
Fifty-five percent of people age 18-29 view unions favorably,
compared with only 29 percent who view them unfavorably, according to
the survey by the Pew Research Center. Overall among all age groups, 48
percent view unions favorably, compared with 39 who don’t, as favorable
opinions about unions continue to rise despite the ongoing political
assault in state legislatures.
