Young and indifferent

Millennials apathetic politically and at work, poll finds

Both major parties are increasingly struggling to retain devotees, and that’s especially true when it comes to younger voters. According to Gallup, 44 percent of millennials—those born between 1980 and 1996—are politically independent. In the same survey, titled “How Millennials Want to Work and Live,” the pollster also found that this population of 20-year-olds to mid-30-somethings are detached when it comes to employment. Fifty percent reported they planned to stay at their current job a year from now, while just 29 percent said they felt “engaged” at work.
