It seems unlikely that we return to suffer the 25% unemployment of the Great Depression. We learned that the government spending - a means of generating demand that was unthinkable in the early 1930s - can stimulate a depressed economy and restore the high level of employment. The experience of World War II was decisive in this respect; so, it is doubtful that we will tolerate again the trauma of mass unemployment.

But unemployment can be a cruel and difficult problem, even if it does not reach massive proportions. In the United States, throughout the 1970s, the 7% unemployment rate would not be a terrible social burden if it were shared equally by all members of the workforce; would correspond to about two weeks of unemployment per person.

But is that unemployment is never shared equally. Typically, it affects and afflicts some more severely than other groups. Women suffer unemployment rates that are 30% to 40% higher than those of men. Blacks are twice as unemployed than whites. Teenagers experience an unemployment which is four to five times higher than among adults.
