Unemployment In The Society

Unemployment is a major issue in the society and in the world as a whole. Various people have taken this fact to their advantage by hiring the desperate job seekers giving them little in return despite over loading them with hard work. Some even go to the extent of even refusing to clear the salary arrears of the already departed employed staff. Patrick a director in one of the local schools is one these people, leaving many regretting having ever worked for him. Ironically, he plans to vie for a councillor seat in the forthcoming elections but the locals have learnt never to trust anybody who cant be trusted with the simple task of paying his few workers. They came up with Hakuna Dhuluma Initiative with their development funds lest they lose it to corruption. When the deal is too sweet you better think twice.
