These researchers have one really weird theory why more young men aren’t working

Before young American men get back to work, they should switch off the video console.

Younger men’s working hours have declined more than those of older men over the last 15 years, according to a working paper by researchers at Princeton University, the University of Chicago and the University of Rochester and distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research, a Cambridge, Mass.-based research group. The researchers analyzed how people spend their time when they are not working.

Older men are more likely to be employed than those who are younger. Some 66% of men looking for jobs aged 20 to 24 were employed in 2016, compared to 82% of those 25 to 29, 86.5% of those 30 to 34, 87% of those 35 to 39 and 87% of those 40 to 44, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
