Job Search

The jobless don't seem to look for jobs very hard.  From Alan Krueger and Andreas Mueller's 2008 working paper, "Job Search and Unemployment Insurance: New Evidence from Time Use Data", it appears that jobless looking for jobs spend about 41 minutes a day looking.  Below, find the distribution of working time (given that they are looking) (click to enlarge).
Rather remarkable.
