Men Loafing

in Work

Russ posted on the recent New York Times report on men choosing not to work.  This letter-to-the-editor in today’s edition of the Gray Lady nicely describes the phenomenon:

To the Editor:

Are you trying to portray this as a social problem? No way. The phenomenon has been around since men have existed.

There is a word for it in English: loafing.
