US: Youth have favourable views of unions

‘Young people think unions are a thing of the past’, it is often argued. But is this true? The American Pew Research Center recently checked and the results are clear. In all age groups, more people have positive than negative views of unions, but support for unions is strongest among youth.

The data are quoted in an interesting article in Business Insider (via Kurt Vandaele). Meanwhile in the Netherlands, the youth movement Young & United has collected tens of thousands of signatures against the fact that young adults get only half the normal minimum wage.
