Most of the jobs at private and public sector require highly experienced applicants that they do not posses. Constantly increasing population can also be taken as a potential reason for the high youth unemployment. Low wages in the labor market is also one of the causes of the youth unemployment. Many young people reject jobs that are offered to them at low wages. Youth unemployment in few recent years has been increased because of the low foreign and domestic investment.
The literacy rate in Mexico is 86.1% versus 99% in the USA. Furthermore, most of the students in Mexico finish school at the age of 14 whereas this figure is 16 in the USA. Many of the current economically active group in Mexico migrate to the USA because they strive for a better education for their children. One of the negative impacts illegal migration can cause is segregation. Many migrants cannot speak fluent English even when living in USA as they live in closed communities consisting of other illegal migrants.
The ageing population of the world is a new phenomenon that, even, the richest and most powerful countries, are trying to understand. The ageing people are no longer restricted to a small portion of the population. However, there are still differences between ageing in developed and underdeveloped countries. This is due to the fact that the increasing number of older people in less developed countries is due to the high number of births during the early twentieth century. But the ageing population of European countries, in recent decades, is due to the relatively high birth rate in first quarter of the century, coupled with the decreasing rate of mortality in all age groups.
Global economic growth is increasingly failing to translate into new and better jobs that lead to a reduction in poverty, according to a new report issued by the International Labour Office (ILO) here today.Globalization is not just failing to create jobs it actually increases unemployment.Between 1990 and 2008, the number of employed workers in the United States grew from about 122 million to about 149 million. Also even when the companies needs workers,instead of human labour they use machines.And when they don’t use machines the workers work in low conditions and for low salaries.Companies such as Gap and Nike has been accused of making their workers work in low conditions.Globalization is just an opportunity for companies to expand and
The factors contributing to this higher repeated instability are several. Young workers usually have lower job protection. In addition, they are most likely to have gained less job-specific experience. Also, compensation pay tends to increase with tenure, making it less costly to fire a young worker (Pagy, 2007). Youth also face higher barriers to entry into the labor market due to their lack of experience.
In particular, high population growth has resulted in higher levels of unemployment. The education system produces skills that are not valued by employers, while raising the expectations of those who acquire them. Consequently, the unemployed do not take up existing job vacancies, and employers are unwilling to hire available candidates (Njonjo, 2010). The mismatch is more marked for school leavers and graduates who have just finished school, partly providing an explanation for the high unemployment rate among youth and new entrants into the job market. The suggested remedy is to reform the education system and increase focus on technical education and vocational training, matching them to the needs of the job market (Coenjaerts et al.
This data has been published by the Cedefop. It was also published that those people who graduated after the year 2008 are twice more vulnerable to be overqualified as compared to those who graduated in 1991-2000. And also 26% of the EU adult employees have a high degree of the skills deficits and hence they are not efficient in their jobs(EPALE, 2016) The term of overqualification has come into picture due to economic slowdown especially in those countries where unemployment rate is quite high. There are drawbacks of overqualification for both the organization and the employees and in same way it also has benefits for the organization as well as the employees. ( Erdogan Berrin etal, 2011:215) “Overqualification is a situation where the individual has the surplus skills, knowledge, abilities, education, experience and other qualification that are not required or utilized on the job.” ( Erdogan Berrin etal, 2011:217).
Our society is still suffering from overpopulation, and non-educational people, the problem of unemployment increases day by day. Jobless have a bad effect on the national production, because of the unemployment issues.

This paper seeks to analyze the reasons of increasing the unemployment rate due to the overpopulation and non-educational as well as unemployment effects on economic and social sphere.
It is a well-known fact that unemployment represents one of the most important problems in the society worldwide. Specifically, it has become a worrisome subject in the European Union, due to the constant high rates of unemployment existing in most of its countries if we compare them with some other countries like Japan or even the United States, who presents low unemployment rates. But what does exactly unemployment means? Looking for a precise definition, we find that there is not a common meaning for this concept: it is a little bit ambiguous. On the one hand, many professionals in economy defines unemployment as the disposition of the people to be employed at a specific wage.
The population is increasing rapidly according to the UN there is about 2.5 percent growth in Pakistan’s population every year. As we now due to the lack of education in the major population those people go to labour and as the government can’t provide many jobs for the uneducated people so in short this leads to increase in unemployment rate. What if we would have more educated people? Then we would come up with new solutions and slow down the population growth
