Protections Against Unemployment

Unemployment is increasing with the increase in population day by day, especially in developing countries. According to the Economic Survey of Pakistan (2018-19), the 3.79 million people are unemployed in Pakistan. The scarcity of employment opportunities have increased and real earnings have declined. Currently, the total labor force in Pakistan is 66 million and out of total labor force, 94.21 percent people are employed and 5.79 percent people are unemployed. SPRC aims to introduce sustainable interventions for protection against unemployment, which refers to the opening up of new opportunities where more and more people can be employed and the existing labor force should be given security through productive social protection and effective rules and regulations of labor market.
