Poll: Nearly Half Of Unemployed Have Stopped Looking For Work
A poll released Wednesday shows that 47 percent of unemployed Americans have given up looking for work.
Conducted on behalf of Express Employment Professionals last month, Harris Poll asked 1,500 unemployed adults whether they agreed with the statement “I’ve completely given up looking for a job.”
Seven percent said they “agree completely” with the statement; another seven percent said they “agree a lot”; 15 percent “agree somewhat”; 18 percent “agree a little”.
Eighty-two percent of those polled agreed that they were “becoming more discouraged the longer I am unemployed”.
