30,000 Jobseekers Have Been Unemployed for Over a Year

The unemployment crisis is particularly affecting women and young people, with a significant proportion of jobseekers belonging to these groups. According to the latest statistics released by Statistics Mauritius on June 28th, a staggering 30,000 individuals in Mauritius have been searching for employment for over a year.

The figures revealed that a staggering 59% of the unemployed are women, highlighting the disproportionate impact of unemployment on this demographic.

Furthermore, a significant 36% of jobless individuals are aged between 16 and 24 years old, indicating that youth unemployment is a major concern.

It is crucial that policymakers prioritize job creation and employment opportunities to help those who have been searching for work for over a year.

A comprehensive approach that addresses the specific needs of women and young people would be particularly effective in tackling unemployment and promoting economic growth.
