Unemployment Problem

Posted on 12th Sep 2020 04:43:32 AM Paragraph

Unemployment means the state of being without any work both for educated and uneducated person for earning ones livelihood. This problem has become a great concern all over the world. But nowhere in the world this problem is so acute as in Bangladesh. Thousands of people in our country are without any job. At present the toughest task for any young man is to manage a job.  

Learned people are always an asset in the country. People usually learn in spite of getting good and suitable job. But when they are unable to get the job than the question may ask that whether the country turn out a good governance system or not. We have discussed many visual problems in our national, international and environmental life but we are illiterate about the epidemic form of problem like unemployment. Almost all over the world learned and qualified persons are not getting their suitable position that's why they are leading very measurable life. It's a dark side of the economy of the country. Many countries like Spain, Greece and Germany are failed to create employment opportunity. People started agaiting against the govt. that's why the country becomes violent. Many Middle East and European country have already started to reduce the employee from their company so that they can maintain their expenses. It's a great negative impact to a country.

There are many reasons behind unemployment problem. Actually, this is not a problem; it's a burden to a country or a nation. Statistics shows that about 64% people of the total population are educated. But among this percentage only 20% educated person get their desires job.

Our country is over populated. The rapid growth of population is the main reason of unemployment problem. Our land is limited but demand is not limited. To utilize the demand by the limited land is a great task. Population explosion should be handled carefully. We should remember that by the birth of newcomer the earth get another two hands without getting any work.  

Our country is industrially very much lagging behind. In fact, the development in this field is very slow. Cottage industries have almost decayed. The few mills, factories and industries that we have can only absorb a limited number of people. Sometimes many foreign investors invest their capital into our garment sectors but political violence, trade union system, discrimination between workers and owner- makes the investor total loss and unsecured.  

Most of the people of our country depend on agriculture. But our cultivable land is very limited. Lands are replaced by the residential area or bricks industry. Therefore, flood, heavy rainfall, drought, better seeds facility, increasing price of fertilizers- makes this sector "not interested".

Our present system of education in stead of giving any solution creates educated unemployed youngman. In our educational system there is no much scope of giving vocational training and technical education to a student. So after taking the highest degree even from the highest seat of learning, they remain unemployed. Though our vocational education system is under the question mark? Students have achieved their degree by not doing any class, any learning and any practical knowledge. Although, our educated youngman generally think it to be disgraceful to do any manual work. They prefer service to any kind of business.

In order to eradicate this problem we have to mobilize all our energies to this great purpose without wasting time. We have BCS/PSC(Bangladesh Civil Service Commission)-by which a number of meritorious student get appointed into the govt. service holder every year. But the percentage of recruitment is in 1/25 situation which is unexpected. Government should increase the number of seats to maintain this fatal problem. Many NGO and private sector can also create the working opportunity.  A large number of mills, factories and industries should be set up where many of our unemployed youths will get the opportunity to work.

A great change should be brought in our education system. More importance should be given on professional, vocational and technical education. And it should be maintained strict fully. These will make a opening to work in different industrial sectors both home and abroad.

The educated youth should change their attitude to life. They must learn to choose independent career. They can start small business. In fact self employment is a possible solution to this great problem. Steps should be taken to set up co-operative farming, cottage industries and to open new system of public work in the rural areas to create job for the village people. Above all, political heat environment, corruption, nepotism, bribe and adequate numbers of seats should be introduced to minimize the problem. Here the govt. responsibility will play an important task.

Unemployment is a great curse to a nation. We can not expect the development of our country leaving its millions of people unemployed to survive as a boastful nation. We should make all out efforts to get rid of this curse.
