Minnesota College Students Advocate for Economic Consideration in Gen Z Community

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, concerns about the economy remain a top issue for voters of all ages. A recent survey by Tufts University revealed that cost of living and inflation are the biggest issues for young people aged 18-34, including members of Generation Z and millennials.

With both campaigns ramping up, it’s fascinating to hear how young voters are considering the economy in their decision-making process. Two Gen Z voters who represent different sides of the political spectrum were featured on MPR News recently. Will Pierce, a political science junior at Macalester College in St. Paul, and Cory Hallada, a political science and economics junior at St. Olaf College in Northfield, shared their perspectives on how the economy is influencing their voting choices this fall.

It’s enlightening to hear from young voters who are actively engaged in the political process and considering important issues like the economy.
