By getting the proper education and applying for a job, our unemployment
has a good chance of decreasing a fair amount.
Unemployment is a big issue since some people seem to think that they can
stay unemployed and on welfare for their whole life and get a fair amount of
money from our government. "Permanent unemployment is BAD. It\'s bad for people,
it\'s bad for business and industry, it\'s bad for productivity and therefor
prosperity" (Sartorius, unemployment 4-5). Some citizens believe that even
though the current unemployment rate is only about five percent, that still is
not that good considering how many people that there are in the United States of
America. That is still over five million citizens remaining unemployed
(Sartorius, unemployment 4-5). The unemployment rate for August in the United
States was "5.1 percent, down three tenths of a piont since the prior month"
(Griffin 1). Some researchers have found links between unemployment, poor
mental health and poor general health possession. Other studies have shown that
the informal support systems, like friends and relatives, can help absorb shock
against the negative effects of unemployment (Unemployed 1).
The latest unemployment rate for August \'96 shows that 4.3 percent of
Vermont\'s citizens are unemployed. That is about fourteen thousand people in
just this one small state (Griffin 1). Think of how many people are unemployed
in the entire United States. That would be over five million people. If people
wanted to get out and get a job, they probobly could pretty easily. Instead of
waiting for theirchecks from the government,they could get a job and bring home
more money than the government sends considering that they have the proper
education. One way to decrease unemployment would be to get the proper
education to be successful in the job industry.
For my solution to the problem, I can launch a page on the internet to let
peeople know that they should try their best to achieve a well paying job.
