Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

10 million Afghans are jobless......

Saturday, March 14, 2009

I reported a couple of months back about the fact that Afghanistan is recession free and has not been effected by the global economical crisis. Well, obviously the jobs and money are not getting to the people who need it the most:

Around 10 million out of the whole population of the war-torn Afghanistan are jobless, a local newspaper reported Tuesday.

"About 10 million out of 25 million populations of Afghanistan are without job," the newspaper Arman-e-Millie quoted Mohammad Zahir Kargar, the president of Workers Union of Afghanistan, as saying.

Based on the remarks of Kargar, the daily said that high rate of unemployment and joblessness is the main reason for taking people towards committing criminal activities, armed robberies, suicide attacks and resorting to drug smuggling and addictions.
