  ABSTRACT

Economists believe that the economy achieves full employment when not more than 6 percent of people are unemployed and become redundant. Unemployment has become a global phenomenon, as an active instigator of economic problems; it has thrown challenges that cannot be ignored by nations, economists, experts, and government. That challenge is the need to constantly update with economic issues and maintained full employment, not to have any causality in the population distribution. Adequate work opportunities is a central need in all societies, it is highly painstaking when we considered modernization which is the powerful forces that have widened the gap between the ‘haves’ those who can take advantage to rapid technological and economic change and the “haves not” those who are unable and unwilling to do so. Do we now say that the economy has created Bias in the process of development? Except for retires, and other receiving government (where available). Most people rely almost entirely on salaries and wages to pay their bills and put something on their table and future, hence, no job, no earning and other effects set in. Unemployment, thus an important issue of the economy, that it requires careful and to expatriate to continuous looked into, the reason being that its rigidities can destroy, destabilizes the economy.
