A sample of 240 unemployed steelworkers who had previously worked at Republic Steel's union facility site in Chicago were examined. The length of time laid off ranged from one to 36 months. The study found that as the length of unemployment increased, individuals were doing less of the expensive or moderately expensive leisure activities and more of those which were relatively free. Marital status, age and length of layoff were significantly related to leisure expenditure participation change.
