In a recent and highly charged referendum to decide whether or not the UK should remain within the 28 nation European Union (EU), a majority of British voters cast their ballot in favour of a British exit from the European political union. As a result, the prime minister has resigned, over 4 million people signed a petition calling for the referendum be repeated, and hundreds and hundreds took to the streets to show their support for remaining in the EU.
The primary reason the Brexit, British exit from the EU, campaign won, was that those over 55 years old have not benefited largely from the Union and the globalization of the workforce and the workplace that has been its salient feature, and that population voted overwhelmingly to draw attention to that fact, and their own circumstances.
And, this is the discussion that must take place. How can continued participation in the union and the mantra of globalization, that tells us about the benefits, but very little about the workers in Europe and North America , who now must compete with workplaces and workers that do not enjoy the rules and regulations that have the workplace safe and managers humane, and workers that have not seen wage increases in decades?
How, if it is possible, do we make globalization and increased European integration benefit those who worked a lifetime to build the society the young now enjoy from being relegated to the scrap heap of the modern economy?
The battle, the young must come to realize, is with those who use the multinational flow of money to their individual benefit, often with little regard to the effect on any one national economy, and not with their parents generation, who have borne the brunt of globalized transnational business economic dislocation.
