Problems of UnemploymentProblem of Unemployment :
Unemployment is serious problem that our government faces. Our leaders are trying their utmost best to solve it wisely. If it is not solved sooner, a social revolution may take plea to have its solution. The main cause of unemployment is the repaid growth of populations. Since independence the populations of India has increased by threes times its total. When people multiply, there raises the problems of unemployment and it becomes difficult for government to provide employment to a sufficient number of people. As a matter of principle it becomes the duty of government to provide employment to all as far as possible and we are blessed that our government is taking keen interest to solve this series problem of today. As the growth of populations is going unchecked, jobs and services in a given field commonly remains insufficient. When our youths do not find employment despite their best efforts, they get irritated and feel disappointed.
There are three types of unemployment, viz., labor class who are not educated, educated persons without possessing any technical qualifications and technical persons such as engineers and technical. Let us implore them one by one.
In case of labor class there are lakhs of people who earn their livelihood daily and gather themselves on some specific place just to find daily employment somewhere. They are not disappointed to a great extends. Sometimes they find employment and sometimes they return to their houses without finding employment. They are habituated to adjust themselves with the circumstance, though they also become irradiated and disappointed sometimes when problems of food and clothing arise before them. This is the case with general labor of the cities. As regards the agriculture labor of the village, they’re also not disappointed to a great extent as they find seasonal employment very easily in the farms and fields of big farmers.
Since the number of educated persons is increasing day by day, we are not in a position to afford a venue of work for this growing number. As such our educated persons are very much disappointed when they wander dark roads in search of employment. As they do not possess any technical and practical training, they only try to find clerical job which are not sufficiently according to the increasing number of educated persons. It has become a very ticklish problem which is being faced by our government.
As regards educated persons, possessing technical qualifications, they tend to be frustrated when they do not find employment despite their best qualifications. There can be in no two opinions that they find their employment very easily on the merits of their technical qualifications, but according to the increasing number of such educated persons also become victims of unemployment. Education is a very good thing and one must be educated but the irony of it is that when we offer educations to young people we are not in position to offer jobs to them. This is the very cause of disappointment among our educated youths.
The educated youth should change their mind also and they should think of self-employment, rather than searching jobs and services hither and there wasting their energy. In this way very serious problem of unemployment may be saved to a great extent.
According to official reports, there are 7,01,987 educated youth seeking employment in Manipur. The population of State, according to the 2011 census, is 27,21,756. Out of these, there are 2,01,327 girls listed in the employment exchange. There are 2,643 handicapped persons.
Official sources said that due to absence of industries and other private enterprises in the State, employment opportunities are very limited. These boys and girls have been scrambling for jobs in government offices.
It is alleged that every government job has a price tag. Those boys and girls whose parents cannot afford whopping amounts to be paid as bribe are disillusioned and many of them become susceptible to anti-national propaganda.
According an analysis by the Army, unemployment is one of the ingredients of the burgeoning armed movement in the State. However, it is refuted by the rebels who maintain that they are taking up arms for a cause.
Many of the unemployed youths had gone to other parts of the country seeking employment. Reports say that there is a large number of Manipuri boys and girls working in offices in the big States.
The unemployed youths told The Hindu that they cannot even start small-scale industries in the State as people get power supply only for a few hours in a day.
