South Africa has found it difficult to come up with resolutions to its ever-increasing unemployment rate. These are not good times within Mzansi, since most families are wondering where their next meal will come from. Even though the government has tried to introduce different grants to alleviate poverty amongst communities, but that doesn’t seem like it’s enough. As we know that grants can only do so much in a person’s life, however, their needs will still be left unmet. One thing that people have been pleading for the leading government to do is to create employment. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened in the past decade or so and that’s a massive concern for the citizens.
Some people have gone to school, got their qualifications and they’re still unemployed. Then some individuals have been let go at their workplaces, as their companies were downsizing and others even close down shop. This was mainly due to the causes of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures that made it harder for businesses to function properly. It seems like many people have taken a hit from the deadly virus, as they had to adjust their lives and find alternatives to put food on the table. Sadly, those individuals that cannot move around due to limited resources end up giving up on life. As they feel that nothing that they do is ever good enough for them to elevate in life and change their families' lives forever.
Living in a country with a massive unemployment rate amongst youth has seen a horrifying reaction for the people that it has touched. As some have decided to end their lives since they feel there’s nothing that they can do in Mzansi to make a living and meet their needs and wants. Meanwhile, some youth have been hit hard by mental illnesses as they find it impossible to change that 74.8% unemployment rate amongst themselves. Then some people rely on drugs and alcohol to cope with their unemployment stresses. Nevertheless, the youth will have to hang in there and not do something that they will regret tomorrow. Life can change for the better anytime, as long as they’re working towards their dreams and goals. Everyone is on earth to solve problems and the South African youth can decrease the high unemployment rate, as long as they focus on solutions than the problems. “South Africa has the highest unemployment rate in the world and the country’s youth unemployment crisis – at 74.85 for those aged between 15 and 24 – is deemed a catastrophe,” said @News24 on their official Twitter page.
