Unemployment is considered as major issue both socially as well as economically since it denotes a bad economic condition of a country. Many economists consider that this high unemployment rate directly links to the poverty rate of the country. Several reasons has triggered the rate of unemployment in the country, such as low quality of healthcare education, less occupational opportunities, increased population and so on. Hence, it demands an immediate call for the measures through which the issue can be addressed.
Comparing to other countries all over the world, the rate is high drawing the immediate attention of nation to address the issue. A wider range of research can be seen on the issue of unemployment, however, most of the researches were done attempting to find out either the reasons for which the issue is increased or the impacts of high unemployment rate on the country. There is hardly any research has been done that aimed to give measures in order to mitigate high unemployment rate in the country. Since it is major issue, some measures should be recommended which aim to mitigate the issue. Thus, the study will research on this field and will suggest some positive measures to increase employment rate in the country.
The aim of the study is to research o the current scenario of employment condition of the country and then to figure out the reasons that trigger the increasement of the rate of unemployment. However, the main purpose of the research is to identify and recommend measures through which employment rate can be increased mitigating the issue.
The reaserch will be holding immense importance since unlike other researches which highlighted the issue and the reasons, this reaserch will further go on suggesting the measures that suggest successful mitigation of the issue. Since there are hardly any reaserch has been conducted that recommend the ways of mitigation of the issue, this study will take an attempt to fill the gap of research.
According to so and so, due to unemployment, a large number of social issue are emerged. The major social issue that is triggered by unemployment is high rate of crimes. Due to the financial need, individuals mainly the young unemployed individuals are indulged into criminal practices like robbery, smuggling, stealing, and trafficking and so on. Even it is seen people commit the crime of contact killing in order to gain money. An ethical deviation is largely seen among the individuals of a society that is under the effect of low employment rate. The rate of crime generally tends to be increased when the issue of unemployment is left unresolved. On the other hand, so and so suggest that the social generated by unemployment rate is the poor societal structure. High unemployment means lack of financial resources to the individuals. Naturally, people fail to meet the basic necessities for him as well as for the entire family which give birth to personal conflicts between the family members and an unhealthy domestic environment. Due to the lack of financial resources caused by unemployment, people fail to give proper educational opportunities to their children and as result, they remain lagged behind in race of life.
The impact of unemployment due to unemployment is equally significant on the economy of a country. Since unemployment refers to lack of financial strength of people of the society which leads to poverty. People indulge in taking debts that leads to economical disasters. Poor and needy people in such condition, tend to indulge in practices like gambling which make Rich richer and poor poorer. Thus social as well as economical structures both are adversely impacted by unemployment.
As per so and so high employment is important for a country’s economy and society since it brings parity in the economical as well as social structure. In order to have a better economy it is important that the issue of high unemployment rate is mitigated. Employment not only brings parity in the economic as well as social structure, but it helps a country’s economy to be stronger and remain ahead of other economies.

With the analytical research design a thorough knowledge of high unemployment rate and its consequences can understood. In order to collect data, both the primary as well as secondary data collection method will be adopted.
