Subject(s): Summary: "Men Without Work, Nicholas Eberstadt's landmark 2016 study, cast a spotlight on the collapse of work for men in modern America. Rosy reports of low unemployment rates and "full or near full employment" conditions, contended Eberstadt, were overlooking a quiet, continuing crisis: Depression-like work rates for American men of "prime working age" (25-54). Thus today, despite the vaccine rollouts, vast numbers of working age men and women are sitting on the sidelines while over 11 million jobs go unfilled. Current low rates of unemployment, touted by pundits and politicians, are grievously misleading. The truth is that fewer prime age American men are looking for readily available work than at any previous juncture in our history. And others may be catching the "Men Without Work" disease too. Given the devastating economic impact of the Covid calamity and the unforeseen aftershocks yet to come, this reissue of Eberstadt's groundbreaking work is more timely than ever"-- Provided by publisher.
