Minnesota College Students Advocate for Economic Consideration in Gen Z Community

In just seven months, the 2024 presidential election will be held. One of the main concerns for voters of all ages is the economy. A recent survey conducted by Tufts University revealed that cost of living and inflation are top issues for young voters aged 18-34, which includes members of Generation Z and some millennials. As both campaigns gear up, it’s fascinating to hear how young voters are considering the economy in their decision-making process.

Two Gen Z voters, Will Pierce and Cory Hallada, were recently featured on MPR News, sharing their perspectives on how the economy is influencing their voting choices this fall. Pierce, a political science junior at Macalester College in St. Paul, and Hallada, a political science and economics junior at St. Olaf College in Northfield, offered valuable insights into how young voters are thinking about economic issues. It’s inspiring to hear from young people who are actively engaged in the political process and considering important topics like the economy.
