June 13, 2013: 10:47 AM ET

About 26% of American women and 12% of men, ages 25 to 54, are neither working nor looking for a job. What are they up to? You tell us!

Do you choose not to pursue a job? Why? Are you taking care of family? Pursuing a hobby? Enrolled in higher education? Are other challenges holding you back?

Why is it NOT worth it to work right now?
