For jobless, more sleep and TV, but also more unpaid work

what do the unemployed do all day?at a time of record-level long-term unemployment, the question matters -- and not just for the jobless themselves. for one thing, if the unemployed aren't seen as using their time productively, it's harder to maintain political support for jobless benefits, which some have argued lately are too costly. for another, we can't accurately assess the damage done to the economy by having so many people out of work unless we know what else they're doing.
