Vocabulary Tricks Part 35: Unemployment

Published on Monday, March 06, 2017
Unemployment is the situation when a person who is actively searching for employment is unable to find work. Jobs are stagnant from the past few years. Unemployment is a sheer waste of manpower. Corruption, bribery and nepotism favour the undeserving job seekers.
The removal of unemployment should be a proclaimed objective of economic planning. With an availability of jobs, many problems in terms of insurgencies can be solved.
There is a need to take measures to solve the problem of unemployment. Activities allied to agriculture like horticulture should be promoted. The government must help the budding entrepreneurs. Betterment of the youth would be tantamount to the betterment of the nation.
