CUT launches ‘Follow the Thread’ campaign to unite working youth



São Paulo – CUT Nacional launches this Saturday (5th) the Segue o Fio campaign. In partnership with the Confederation of German Unions (DGB), the actions on social networks aim to expand the unionization of young workers. In addition to stressing the importance of uniting youth in the struggle for the preservation of social rights, which are under attack during the Bolsonaro government.

With live broadcast by TVT, through the Current Brazil Radio and through social networks, starting at 2 pm, the Segue o Fio campaign has the participation of rappers Gog and Delacruz, singer Ana Cañas and poet Kimani.

In addition to the emptying of access to higher education policies, when leaving college, the main difficulty for youth is accessing the formal labor market.

The Youth Secretary of CUT Nacional, Cristiana Paiva Gomes, says that the feeling is sometimes of “frustration”. In an interview with Glauco Faria, Current Brazil Newspaper, this Friday (4), she says that the exit goes through the organization.

“We need to reinvent ourselves, as a union movement, in order to reach the working youth who are in the informal sector. All of this involves information and organization. This is one of the reasons for the campaign. Bring a reflection on work, rights. And about the strength of youth. ”

Given the disheartening situation, she even points out that many young people suffer from depression. She also commented on “anti-politics” and on the attacks that seek to vilify the work of unions.

Unemployment and informality

Even before the pandemic, young people already comprised the population group that suffered most from unemployment. Data from the National Household Sample Survey (Pnad) Continuous point out that, in the first quarter of this year, 27.7% of young people between 18 and 24 years old were looking for a job in the labor market. In recent months, however, this percentage may have reached up to 40%, according to experts.

On the other hand, young people are more exposed to the risk of contamination by covid-19, since workers in the risk group, for the most part, have been removed or have adopted remote work.

In addition, without formal employment, young people are also the majority among the informal. They act, for example, as application deliverers, facing long hours, low pay and no rights.
