Minnesota College Students Advocate for Economic Consideration in Gen Z Community

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, the cost of living and inflation are top concerns for voters of all ages. A recent survey by Tufts University revealed that these issues are particularly important to young people, including members of Generation Z and some millennials. With both campaigns ramping up, it’s fascinating to hear how young voters are considering the economy in their decision-making process.

MPR News recently featured two Gen Z voters, Will Pierce and Cory Hallada, who represent different sides of the political spectrum. 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, shared their perspectives on how the economy is influencing their voting choices this fall. It’s inspiring to hear from young voters who are actively engaged in the political process and considering important issues like the economy.
