Unemployment is a very crucial problem in Mauritius especially for the young graduates. The Government has implemented many solutions to overcome this obstacle such as empowerment programs, encouraging people to open their own enterprise by helping them with financial and moral support, implementing entrepreneur education in the curriculum of schools and universities, creating youth emplowerment programs for fresh graduates, training and many others.
However, the government is giving other private enterprises examples to employ part time workers in order to reduce costs.
One common example is ‘supply teacher’ in Mauritius. They perform the same tasks as a permanent educator but they are not being given the same working conditions. They are also human beings, why they do not get sick leave and other benefits. They are being employed only for one year contract and have to apply again, conduct interviews again and again, frustrate to wait for call to get a posting and worried the whole year not to have a termination letter.
Moreover, there is the problem of corruption in Mauritius which act as a barrier in many people’s lives. Many people are being employed not by merits but only by ‘backing’ and ‘bribery’.
In addition, many foreign people are being employed in some sectors in Mauritius (navy, textile, construction and many others) which we commonly name as ‘cheap labour’ from asian countries. These placement could have been given to Mauritian people.
Hence, in order to cut costs, we Mauritian people are facing various obstacles in our lives and we are not being rewarded according to meritocracy. The Government should solve these problems first in order to get a better Mauritius.0
