Unemployment In World What Is Unemployment? Unemployment is an economic term. Employment means occupation. To be engaged in doing something productive is to be employed. So unemployment means absence of employment. When the people are out of work, they are said to be unemployed. Unemployment is a worldwide problem. Even rich and advanced countries like U.S.A, U.K and France suffer from unemployment. In the Asian countries, unemployment is at its highest peak. Causes of Unemployment: The causes of world-spread unemployment are four: Firstly, our education system does not suit our needs. The teaching institutions turn out a peculiar type of young man who hates manual labour. Secondly, if a country is not much advanced in industry. Then the country cannot absorb his young men in factories because they are not skilled. Thirdly, in any country like Asian countries, few privileged persons are keeping all the key industries to them. If work and leisure are equally divided then the educated people can try their luck in business. Lastly, if the birth rate in country is very high then the resources of the country are not enough to maintain a large population. People are more, the jobs are few. The result is unemployment. This is the cause that in Asian countries the unemployment is much greater then Europe. How We Can Control Unemployment?
