  5. Essay - 1,000 words, minimum - Historically, younger workers have been less likely than older workers to be union members. This trend looks to be changing. In 2017, the number of union members in the US increased by over 262,000 and 3/4 of those gains were among workers 34 years old and younger. How can the union movement continue to develop and grow in a way that attracts more young workers and encourages the development of young leaders? What do you see as ways for the union movement to bridge generational differences between older workers and younger workers?
