Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry is concerned about the high rate of youth unemployment, saying it is one of the most critical issues Fiji is facing today.

Youth unemployment, a concern: FLP Chaudhry said according to the statistics released by the International Labour Organisation, youth unemployment is as high as 37 percent at the end of 2021.

He said a lot of the young people he has spoken to during his visits around the country are thoroughly demoralised and frustrated.

“They can’t find jobs despite having qualifications. They don’t have a penny in their pockets. They can’t be asking their parents or relatives for pocket money all the time,” he said.

“It is the government’s responsibility to ensure jobs are available for our university graduates or diplomats. They have a right to work.

 “But in the past 15 years, the FijiFirst government has failed to come up with effective programmes to create jobs for them.

“All this talk about free education is futile unless we can ensure that our graduates and diplomats can find employment after completing their studies,” he said.

Chaudhry said the party will have a number of policies which will ensure that they have access to some income-earning opportunities while seeking permanent work.
