It is a pity that unemployed people in our country include educated, trained, skilled, semi-skilled and illiterate people. Lack of employment opportunities on a massive scale is indeed frustrating. Not only the unemployed people and their families lead a very miserable life but with the passage of time the problem becomes horrific with consequences for the entire country. Also problems like crime and even terrorism result from this scourge. Unfortunately, our job market has been unable to keep pace with the existing population in the country. The government ought to realise that it could have to overcome this monster, otherwise the economy as well the country will continue to suffer. FAIZA JAVED, Lahore, August23.
