Editor Casey Published in The Daily Caller

Young Voices Editor Casey Given was published in The Daily Caller about what Boeing’s recent agreement with their machinist union means for the future of the American labor movement.

Washington that 22 other states sought to snatch, the deal has nonetheless been marred by controversy because of the union’s concession to wean its workforce off of a traditional pension plan. New Boeing hires will instead be enrolled in a 401(k)-style retirement savings account that has become the norm in non-unionized workplaces in recent decades, leading many publications like theLos Angeles Times to decry the “decline of union clout” and “death of the middle class.”

Americans should not be fooled by such scaremongering. While it’s true that unions have been losing influence over the past half-century with historically low membership, the new economic order of global capitalism has created more wealth for world markets and more opportunities for historically disenfranchised workers than any other era of history. In this light, Boeing’s deal should thus not be seen as an omen of organized labor’s impending death, but a sign of their necessary evolution.

Advocate Yaël Published in PanAm Post

Young Voices Advocate Yael Ossowski was published by The Pan American Post writing about the benefits of open borders.

Most of the blame can and should be placed at the hands of the ruling socialist regime, which has deprived its people of so many opportunities, but the buck does not stop there. As the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa demonstrate, determined people can find a way to subvert authoritarianism and bring about greater democracy.

But in order to get there, they need the means. They need trade. They need to be able to improve their economic conditions and have helpful partners in the US government. They need the economic opportunity which would be immediately granted once US Americans are free to spend money in Cuba, travel to Cuba, and trade with Cuban businesses.
