Unemployment Problem in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is a small country with growing problems. Among all problems, the unemployment problem is a great one. The problem spread its evil clutch all over the country. It is going from bad to worse. All are getting concerned with this problem.
There are many causes behind it. The first and foremost cause is overpopulation. Her population is growing very rapidly. After independence, the population doubled. In respect of population, it is the eighth-largest country in the world.
The country cannot provide this huge population with employment opportunities. So, many people fall into this problem. There are plenty of natural resources in our country. They are not properly used. This also creates a problem.
Here are a few mills and factories in this country. A small number of people are engaged there. Besides, every year two or three mills are closed due to economic loss. Thus the scope of employment is narrowing. Most people are illiterate. They are not unemployed and involved in productive work. This is another cause. Our educational system is defective. The present educational system is not fit practical life.
Professional and vocational, training is absent in this system. Besides, our students nourish a false sense of self-dignity. They are not keen to do manual labor. Rather, they like to remain unemployed. There is no distribution of national wealth properly. It is also responsible for the problem. Some people think that everything is predestined by God. So, there is no use of try they like to remain idle.
The effects of the unemployment problem are many. Drug addiction, kidnapping, snatching, traffic jams, and various types of social crimes result in unemployment. Economic depression is going on throughout the country. In a word, the country is lagging behind from all quarters for it. No prosperity is possible for it.
The following measures can be prescribed to solve the problem. Firstly, all should be educated. Secondly, more and more mills and factories should be established. Thirdly, vocational training should be introduced in education. Fourthly, national wealth should be equally distributed.
Fifthly, we have to change our outlook on our fate. Sixthly, natural resources should be used properly. Last, of all, the Government should take massive programs to make an unemployment-free Bangladesh.
Fine, we can say that unemployment is a great problem. It should be solved at any cost. 'It is high time to solve the problem. Conscious people should work together with the Government in this regard. Otherwise, we all fall into great danger.
