ABSTRACT
The article focuses on several studies on unemployment in the U.S. A government report has been discovered by The New York Times which found that the level of unemployment among young people in the country is much higher than official figures show. A study released by the National Bureau of Economic Research has found that the majority of unemployed teens are white. The willingness of middle-aged men to work has been reduced by the Social Security Disability Program.
