Employment means occupation. To be busy in doing so me thing productive is to be employed. So unemployment means absence of employment. When the people are out of work and have nothing to do, they are said to be unemployed. Unemployment is a worldwide problem. Even advanced countries like U.S.A., U.K., and France have this problem. In the third world countries, unemployment is at its highest peak. Pakistan is no exception.
Unemployment is a social evil of far reaching consequences. It spells starvation, disease and death on its victims Dishonesty, corruption, crime, sin and vices of all kinds prevail in a society where population is unemployed on a large scale. People busy in finding out job for them cannot pay attention to their rights and duties as citizens. Moreover, when a large portion of population is unemployed, no effort to increase the national income can succeed.
The causes of this wide-spread unemployment are four. First, our system of education does not suit our needs. Much attention is paid to general and liberal education. Our country is advancing country and needs skilled hands. Secondly, our country is not much advanced in industry. we cannot absorb all our young men in factories. Moreover, they are not skilled. Thirdly, in our country a few privileged persons are keeping all the key industries to them. If work and leisure are equally distributed, all men will have enough of work and enough of leisure. But the educated young men and common men 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. People are more, the jobs are few. The result is unemployment.
In order to remove the unemployment the country should be industrialized to provide new channels of employment. The concept of education should be changed. Planned distribution of wealth should be ensured. Population must be kept within reasonable limits. It is only after a long time struggle that we can get rid of this evil and make a country prosperous.
