Is It No Jobs Or No One Who Wants A Job?

Here's a chilling look into America’s work ethic: A new survey by the Pew Research Center found that 39% of people between 16 and 24 have no interest in working. At all.

By the Numbers

37 Percentage of all Americans age 16 and over who are neither employed or actively looking for work.

86 million Americans not in the work force who don’t want a job now.

29 Percentage of American men not in the labor force today who said they don’t want a job.

24 Percentage of US men outside the labor force in 2000 who said they didn’t want to work.

40 Percentage of American women not in the labor force today who said they’re not interested in being employed.

131,000 Unemployed people who are able to work, but didn’t look for a job during the past four weeks because of family responsibilities.
