1 in 8 American Men Between Ages 25-54 Are Not Working, 1 in 6 No Longer In Workforce

The Weekly Standard

“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. This is an all-time high dating back to when records were first kept in 1955. 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).
