Unemployment is a major issue in our country, particularly in the province of Sindh. Millions of educated and highly qualified people are working in the private schools, shops, and factories, driving rickshaws and taxis and working as chauffeurs etc. The salaries are meager and the people do not have enough money to support their families. In other words, they are playing role of the labors. Unemployment further an creates poverty. This prompts and encourages people to commit suicide or indulge in self-harm and other self-injurious activities.

I am beseeching to the government to provide jobs to the educated people on merits. This will root out poverty and unemployment, and is necessary for the development and advancement of our beautiful country.
