Almost half of unemployed Americans are no longer looking for work, and the numbers are even grimmer for those who have been out of the workforce for a longer period of time.

A new Harris Poll released Thursday found that 43 percent of Americans without jobs have given up looking for employment. And for those who have been out of the workforce for at least two years, a startling 59 percent stopped looking for work. More than half – 51 percent – haven’t had a job interview since 2014.
