One in Six American Men Not Working

National Center for Policy Analysis

February 13, 2014

More than one in six men between the ages of 25 and 54 is unemployed, says the Wall Street Journal.

More than 10 million men ages 25 to 54 do not have jobs today, a function of the slow economy as well as technology and globalization, say economists.

  • In the early 1970s, 6 percent of American men 25 to 54 were unemployed.
  • By the end of 2007, 13 percent were out of work.
  • In 2009 at the peak of the recession, almost 20 percent of American men were without jobs.
  • In December 2013, that figure was at 17 percent. Two thirds of these men reported that they were not looking for work, which means that they are not labeled as "unemployed" in official unemployment statistics.[More]

So what is causing this? Is it the "Age Of Obama"? The Age of Free Trade? The Age Of Outsourcing? The Age Of Mass Immigration and American Worker Displacement?

One thing it's not is the age of "white male privilege."
