FDL: Young People Back Labor Unions by 2-to-1 Margin

More American side with public sector unions than side with the Republican governors around the country who are trying to take away the unions collective bargaining rights according to the newest Gallup poll. The poll found 48 percent agree more with the state employee labor unions, while 39 percent agree with the governors.

And young people side overwhelming with the labor unionsby a greater than two-to-one margin.

With Whom Do Americans Agree More -- Governors or State Employee Unions -- in State Disputes? Among Key Subgroups, March 2011



Why younger Americans so overwhelmingly back the public sector labor unions is an interesting question given that the age group is the least likely to actually be part of a public sector labor union.

Part of it could be that this has obviously become a very partisan issue, and young people tend to support Democrats, but that in itself isnt a sufficient explanation because the partisan split among young people isnt that large.

1. Great to hear! I think the youth are better tuned into the future of where this
nation is headed and they want union organization. Any not seeing the future either got their head in their butts or are on the take IMO.
