I read an article in The Wall Street Journal titled “More Men in Prime Working Ages Don’t Have Jobs.” The article discussed how men in their 40s and 50s are having a hard time finding jobs. Many of the men interviewed in the article were laid off and had been unemployed for long periods of time. One 53-year man shared his story of being unable to find work for three years.
In this segment on Fox26 Houston, John Pacini, co-founder of Dad 2.0 & XY Media, April Maggio of TPI Staffing, and I talked about male unemployment and how it affects families. Watch the video and share your thoughts in the comments section.
