Unemployment in  our country

I want to draw the attention of the government and the public to the problem of unemployment. With the increase in population and the rising cost of living, its severity is also increasing. During the past few years, it has become unbearable.

The main cause of unemployment is that we are not certain about our goals. Our students have no clear planning of their aims. Everyone in our society wants to become an engineer or doctor. As the degree holders and job opportunities do not match, the result is unemployment. Another big reason for unemployment in Pakistan is concerned with the backwardness of the agriculture sector. Agriculture is the biggest sector of our country that contributes 20.9% to GDP and 44% of people get jobs from this sector directly or indirectly.

Our government should set up an independent department for the eradication of unemployment. Our government has already set up the departments for the control of corruption, pollution, overpopulation, food shortage, etc. A department for the control of unemployment will certainly produce good results. Decentralization of industrial activity is necessary to reduce unemployment. 

If industrial activities are centralized in one place, there will be fewer opportunities in the underdeveloped areas. The agriculture sector should be developed. Family planning centres should be opened to control the flow of overpopulation. So the government should adopt such policies.

HURAIN FATIMA,

Lahore.
