The Daily Dawn,
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, 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. There is hardly a family that is not hit by this vice. During the past few years, it has become unbearable.
Before suggesting suitable remedies, I would like to analyze the causes. The main Cause is that We are not certain about Our goals. in the developed countries, every student is clear about his goal in life. Our students have no clear planning about their aims. They study the subjects and combinations which others are studying. Everyone in our society wants to become an engineer or a doctor. As the degree holders and job opportunities do not match, the result is unemployment.
Most of the people think that the cause of unemployment is overpopulation. Some also think that the use of farm machinery has also unemployed our laborers. Both the concepts are not true. The real fault is that we do not have proper planning. We should take the example of China. The world’s largest populated country has dominated the market everywhere. The reason is that the Chinese planners have devised schemes of cottage industry and local business. Moreover, they have provided a guideline to the youngsters to work in the form of groups. Their mutual co-operation has provided chances of employment to everybody.
Let us take the example of the developed countries. They use farm machinery but they never complain of unemployment. The reason is that they have given up there. traditional methods. They are no more over-employed. They have become progressive growers. Here in our country, the whole family works on the same farmland. By distributing work, each member of the family can generate his own sources. In this way, everybody can make progress.
Last but not least, 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. hope that the wide circulation of your reputed daily will spread my ideas far and wide.
