Unemployment is a big waste of man power
The unemployment problem in India has become very serious in the recent years. The economic well being of the country depends greatly upon the solution of the problem of unemployment. During the present oil crisis even highly advanced countries like England, France, Italy, USA, etc. are also facing the problem of unemployment.
In the communist countries like Russia and China, the problem of unemployment can be solved easily by employing all the idle population on any available job. In the Constitution of Russia, work is both a right and duty. It is the responsibility of the state there to provide work to the people.
Unemployment is a big waste of man power. It means that while the people are willing to work they have no work to do. It is sort of forced idleness in the absence of work. Unemployment is one of the most important reasons of India’s poverty and backwardness.
In the rural areas also millions of people are either fully unemployed or semi-unemployed. The problem of unemployment is especially acute among the landless workers in the villages, who do not have their own land. There is a tendency among the educated people of the villages, to migrate to the cities.
There are so many causes of unemployment in India such as increasing population, defective system of education, backwardness of our agriculture, slow rate of industrialization, etc. million of uneducated young men and lakhs of matriculates, graduate, post graduates swell the number of the unemployed in our country annually. Even highly trained personal like doctors, engineers and science also face the problem of unemployment. The highly trained personal like doctors’ engineers and scientists instead of starting their own ventures simply run after the government jobs. Thus, they waste their talent and energy in doing routine jobs. They depend too much upon the government agencies for providing them the jobs. They have no ambition to start their own factories, hospitals, or laboratories and do independent work.
The country should also be industrialized at a very fast pace so that more job opportunities can be created for the workers. More and more labor intensive industries and export oriented industries should be set to solve the unemployment problems.
