37 Percent Of Working Age Americans Are Not Looking For A Job

Excellent graphic below from CNN money which shows that 91 million Americans over the age of 16 are not looking for a job. A portion of this group is in college and retired, but a growing part of the pie are Americans that have given up looking for work because there are no jobs available.

As machines continue to take over a larger and larger portion of the work in the years ahead, this will be a continued problem for the country. Emergency unemployment benefits are already beginning to be cut off. While the U.S. is still considered the richest country in the world, it would not take much for some areas to move quickly into social unrest.
