23 News job expert LoRayne Logan says a new study that compares weekday activities of the employed to the unemployed, sheds some light on just how much time the jobless are spending looking for work. Data shows an unemployed person spent an hour longer sleeping, spent over an hour more watching TV, and did two hours more of housework than their peers who have jobs. Logan believes many jobseekers have lost their confidence they will find a job, and are becoming passive with their job search.
Logan says with lean operations, most companies are running right now when it comes to hiring, their going to look for the people who will be the highest producers.
