YOUNG PEOPLE BRING POLITICS ONLINE
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Feb 25, 2008
Young adults are finding their political voices online, although sometimes they don’t understand the repercussions their online statements may have in the real world, including the workplace. BRUCE BARRY, professor of management and sociology, who wrote the book "Speechless: The Erosion of Free Expression in the American Workplace," said, "We all have this magical view of free speech." Young people's lack of work experience contributes to their misconception that they can say whatever they want about politics without workplace repercussions, he said.
