Men Without Work
Men Without Work0 0 5 Höfundur: Nicholas Eberstadt Lesari: Stephen R. Thorne
But a closer look shows that something is going seriously wrong. This is the collapse of work-especially among America's men. Political economist Nicholas Eberstadt shows that while "unemployment" has gone down, America's work rate is also lower today than a generation ago-and that the work rate for U.S. men has been spiraling downward for half a century. Astonishingly, the work rate for American males aged twenty-five to fifty-four-or "men of prime working age"-was actually slightly lower in 2015 than it had been in 1940: before the War, and at the tail end of the Great Depression.
Today, nearly one in six prime working age men has no paid work at all-and nearly one in eight is out of the labor force entirely, neither working nor even looking for work. This new normal of "men without work," argues Eberstadt, is "America's invisible crisis."
So who are these men? How did they get there? What are they doing with their time? And what are the implications of this exit from work for American society?
