  8. Population explosion

Industrialization has enabled us to improve our standards of living but it has brought with it the need of people to involve themselves in money generating opportunities in order to acquire the better standards of living which they greatly yearn for. Unlike the primitive people who used primitive tools, education and ways of living, but had to accept low standards of living, we at this time and era cannot bear with low living standards. This in turn can only mean that at one time or another we must be involved in some kind of money generating activity in order to improve our standards hence we must be employed.

There are various ways of overcoming unemployment and these include;

  1. Ensuring political stability in a country
  2. Controlling the population growth rate
  3. Allowing gender balance in employment opportunities
  4. Encouraging entrepreneurship/self-employment
  5. Ensuring that there is a proper education system
  6. Controlling the rate of inflation
  7. Reducing the retirement age
  8. Providing basic education to all
  9. Avoiding being choosy when selecting a job
