Youth unemployment is robbing the dignity of our youth; YouStart cannot be the panacea —Okudzeto Ablakwa

 

Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says it is an extremely flawed assumption to proceed on the premise that everyone can be a successful entrepreneur. According to him, youth unemployment is robbing the dignity of our youth, and YouStart cannot be the panacea.

A quick fix is to fill the thousands of job vacancies currently available in numerous departments from teaching, planning, nursing, policing, immigration, fire service, armed forces, sanitation, local government etc. Proceeds from the expenditure cuts he advocated can be used to pay these new employees.

Also, government should pay contractors so they can expand their staff strength and stop the layoffs.

He further added that incentives to private sector employers who engage fresh graduates will offer the youth better opportunities than the moribund YouStart.
