Why We Love to Think the Jobless Are Lazy

Mythology, narcissism, and 'raw fear' drive conceit

(Newser) – In America, we like to think that

the unemployed are to blame for their joblessness

—that, in the words of Ben Stein,

they’re “people with poor work habits and poor personalities."

But any economist will tell you that’s not true,

writes David Sirota in Salon.

The real problem: there are “five applicants

for every one job opening.”

So why do we keep believing the jobless are lazy—

that, in essence, "15 million jobless Americans

are George Costanzas"?

The loyal, the let-down,

the critical and the regretful

 

Labour MPs

apply their benchmark to the Butler findings

and the prime minister's position

LABOR: How Many Jobless?

 

Monday, Mar. 17, 1930

Time

 

How many workmen were jobless throughout the land

last week not even the President of the U.S. knew.

Government officials made guesses on unemployment,

colored more by partisan politics than by positive facts.

Senators flayed the Department of Labor

for its paltry system of gathering labor statistics.

The City of Milwaukee opened soup kitchens.

Bread lines stretched out in Brooklyn.

Manhattan's Bowery swarmed with sullen idle men.

Communists staged demonstrations

throughout the U.S. as well as abroad (see p. 21).

Though these things combined to make

the Hoover Administration acutely unemployment-conscious,

none of them answered the question: how many jobless?
