How do we get to the bottom of the truth as far as jobs are concerned?Even the most experienced economists have gone on record that we have had jobless growth in the past four and odd years. The emphasis has always been on what we know as casual and contract jobs. No one can deny this. Even the most die-hard supporters of BJP will agree that this is the true state of affairs.
And the Government goes on the defense, very shrewdly talking about the PF and ESI figures. Well, one can quickly ask: what about your own NEEM scheme, Mr. Modi?
After all, it is your own Government that has made this scheme sort of compulsory in every manufacturing enterprise. Does the Government think that mere training will lead to employment?
Even after three years of NEEM, without ESI or PF, the poor guy would go to another company and still not be employed. Do we have a law that says that these guys should be absorbed in regular jobs?
Memers who have credible statistics with them, may please respond with all the evidence. Meanwhile. the jobs are just not there. And this is a big source of worry.
