Majority of the youth is either unemployed or under-employed which has led many to developing psychological issues and with heightened frustration, low self-esteem as a result of no job opportunities, the youth is tilting towards resolving monetary issues through violent means. Experts revealed to Daily Times that the current pattern of employment points towards gender imbalances, serious work deficits and greater under-utilised workforce, adding that the federal government has to act quickly in addressing unemployment and create an environment, which fosters investment, entrepreneurship and market-led skill development. They said that the government should simultaneously focus on sustainable livelihoods by recognising the fundamental rights of all workers, ensuring workplaces are free from discrimination and exploitation, facilitating social and employment protection and access to healthcare for all as well as an active dispute resolution mechanism that ensures harmonious relations between workers and employers leading to productive workplaces.
