Graduate extortion

Newspost

 
April 18, 2015

The unemployment issue in Pakistan has reached such levels of depravity that highly educated graduates are resorting to unacceptable acts like extortion and blackmail to stay afloat. Undertaking such deeds is not necessarily a consequence of frustrated endeavours to find work but the utter and hopeless situation of law in the country.
Unemployment is a universal phenomenon but unlike the more developed economies where governments sustain an individual through unemployment benefits, the younger generation in Pakistan is left to fend for themselves. There is unemployment in Pakistan but it would be wrong to say that there are no jobs at all. The government needs to liaise with the young generation and help them settle into working environments. They should be provided information about the position of employment, provisions should be made for internships and apprenticeship programmes where the youth are kept busy through personal development rather than leave them to indulge in dark activities.
