This Isn’t Good…..
1 in 6 American Men Between Ages 25-54 Are Not Working
From the article:
“There are currently 61.1 million American men in their prime working years, age 25–54. A staggering 1 in 8 such men are not in the labor force at all, meaning they are neither working nor looking for work.
Funny statistics. Maybe I’m just tired. After all, it’ not yet 6 am.
An additional 2.9 million men are in the labor force but not employed (i.e., they would work if they could find a job).
So, they’re working but they aren’t working. What?
I think I have this figured out? Before the additional 2.9 million is added in…the figure is 1 in 8. When you add the people that are in the labor force but not employed you get 1 in 6. (Probably the unemployed drawing unemployment?)
The title is technically correct then.
