ITUC Statement on International Youth Day, 12 August

On International Youth Day, 12 August, young workers reject a world steeped in corporate greed, misogyny, racism and xenophobia, and in which workers are denied our fair share. Young workers are speaking out against violence and harassment in the world of work and beyond. We raise our voices in unity and solidarity with older workers, women, migrant, LGBTI+, disabled, indigenous, racialised and marginalised workers, who are often exposed to the worst forms of discrimination, violence and harassment. When we find solutions for the most exposed, we find solutions for the majority.
