GOA: The state needs to study the reason behind the high unemployment rate, said chief minister Pramod Sawant as he pointed out that the private sector is struggling to get skilled workers in Goa. There are over a lakh individuals registered on the state employment exchange or which three fourth are currently unemployed while the rest are looking for better prospects. “Goa’s unemployment rate has increased significantly and to reduce it, this model career centre will play an important role,” said.
“I realised that this would not work out and I started my own clinic. After that I got the chance of a government job,” the chief minister said as he urged youth to start working irrespective of the salary. Labour and employment minister Jennifer Monserrate said the the state government has received inputs of workers being rendered unemployed because of the Covid pandemic. “A few cases have come to the chief minister and me. We will see how best to help them,” said Monserrate.
