Em­ploy­ment prob­lems

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MUHAMMED ASHAR NAEEM

I would like to in­vite at­ten­tion of au­thor­i­ties con­cerned to­ward in­creas­ing un­em­ploy­ment. The causes of un­em­ploy­ment are four. First, our sys­tem of ed­u­ca­tion does not suit our needs. Much at­ten­tion is paid to gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion. Se­condly, our coun­try is not much ad­vanced in in­dus­try.

We can­not ab­sorb all in in­dus­tries, as they are not skilled. Ed­u­cated young men and com­mon peo­ple have nei­ther the cap­i­tal, nor the op­por­tu­ni­ties to try their luck in busi­ness. Lastly, in our coun­try birth rate is very high. The sources of the coun­try are not enough to main­tain such a large pop­u­la­tion. The re­sult is un­em­ploy­ment. More­over, when a large por­tion of pop­u­la­tion is un­em­ployed, no ef­fort to in­crease na­tional in­come can suc­ceed. — Karachi
