Dear Editor

Nowa­days em­ploy­ment is a very se­ri­ous is­sue and peo­ple who are well qual­i­fied are not get­ting suit­able jobs. If peo­ple are get­ting jobs then ei­ther the pay is not suit­able or ac­cord­ing to the qual­i­fi­ca­tion the pay is very low.

Due to this many de­serv­ing peo­ple are still un­em­ployed and de­serv­ing tal­ent is go­ing to waste. Un­em­ploy­ment then leads to crime and other so­cial prob­lems. in­sti­tu­tions must keep a fair pol­icy and give jobs and pays ac­cord­ing to the skills and aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion a per­son has there­fore en­sur­ing that un­em­ploy­ment does not spread in the so­ci­ety

"53 per cent of em­ployed youth suf­fer some de­gree of skill de­pri­va­tion while only 8 per cent of youth are un­em­ployed"

Not­ing that the present ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem needs to be im­proved , "90 per cent of em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties re­quire vo­ca­tional skills but 90 per cent of our col­lege/school out­put has book­ish knowl­edge."

The un­fin­ished ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing re­form agenda de­nies our youth the eco­nomic equiv­a­lent of a right to vote. It per­pet­u­ates in­equal­ity of op­por­tu­nity be­cause un­em­ploy­a­bil­ity is now a big­ger prob­lem than un­em­ploy­ment. Sa­nia Younus Rana
