Young American men can find work but prefer to play video games
Twenty-something men are working many fewer hours than they did a decade and a half ago, according to a new study, and the biggest reason is that they prefer to play video games.

Men aged 21-30 worked 12% fewer hours in 2015 than they did in 2000, according to the study, published Monday by the National Bureau of Economic Research, and about half the reason is the time they spend gaming.

Why it matters: The results suggest that reduced work for prime-age men is not just or even mostly because they can't find jobs or sufficient hours. It's that, rather than accept what is out there, they choose the contemporary equivalent of hanging out at the pool hall or the race track. In fact, in 2015, roughly 15% of young men worked zero weeks over the year, nearly double the rate in 2000. ...

Perhaps they started playing video games at too young of age and got hooked on them? Well...

Michael McGough wrote:
...Scalia was especially devoted to the free-speech protections of the 1st Amendment, and one of his most memorable 1st Amendment opinions involved video games....

...In his opinion, Scalia mocked the research that purported to show a connection between watching video games and aggressive behavior. All it actually demonstrated, he said, was "at best some correlation between exposure to violent entertainment and minuscule real-world effects, such as children's feeling more aggressive or making louder noises in the few minutes after playing a violent game than after playing a nonviolent game."...

Most of these people produce entertainment content, of which there is a large demand of. If you are a good video gamer, people will watch you play, and offer financial support. 

There is an event going on this week, Games done quick, where professional game players (and there a thousands of them participating) play games super good to raise millions of dollars for cancer and doctors without borders. 

Plus there are plenty of video game tournaments, where these gamers become champions, and produce amazing entertainment.

Like the article mentions, it is a life focused on leisure and hobbies, which later become into skills in the gaming industry, or even the entertainment industry, just look at all the YouTube. 

I bet we all know Christians who spend their time doing ministry, well for a secular person that is their ministry.

Hunger is the best motivator I know. Parents cut off support. These kids are not honoring their parents. And parents are not doing their job by enabling this behavior. Or send them to my Dad (87) for a week or two of retraining and motivation. They will be happy to find a job.

Stop minimum wage hikes! Give 15 year olds the ability to work. And any boy that fathers a child out of wedlock needs to given the choice of road crew for cleaning highways or a job at a grainier or cotton gin coop. You put in a 12 hour shift everyday for 6 days a week aught impede his stupidity. As for girls, since we're about equality, the same goes for you.

Pure laziness is what it is. After I become a multi millionaire and I acquire some kind of factory I will only utilize temp workers from temp agencies and will not have any employees on the company payroll to avoid paying wages and benefits.

they moved everything to parttime under Obamacare.

bring back jobs, we've lost tens of millions.

quit giving jobs to foreigners with special visas and people here illegally and giving them comfort and aid while our people dwindle...

and you'll see them come back.

what has been done to this generation is despiscable.

Interesting thought Mike. What do the parents and grandparents do with these young folks. It is likely too late to instill in them a work ethic and kicking them out on the street is a tough thing to do. And if someone is on the street, employment is pretty tough to get.

I am old enough that I didn't have to experience that kind of thing, but I often wonder if my two grandsons were suddenly kicked out of a mother and an aunt's house, would I let one of them move in with me?

At this point, I would say NO.
