Les jeunes de la RD Congo manque du travail

Bonjour encore une fois mes amis

La plus part des jeunes de notre pays sont des chômeurs, ils manquent par où aller, Ici on ne donne plus le retraite aux vieillards et c'est ça la première cause il y a ceux qui ont 70 à 80 ans dans des services de l'Etat. Un pays qui a beaucoup de minerais mais on n'a pas le soucis de créativité pour encadrer la population; on ait devenu de mendiant car ceux qui ont la possibilité de donner des travaux aux gens, ne donne qu'à celui qu'il connaît ou quelqu'un de sa famille et c'est ça la virus qui domine dans la République entière. Il y a un garçon qui a terminé en géologie mais il manque par où aller or nous avons de l'Or ici dans l'Est du Pays, il devient caméraman pour avoir du savon seulement; ainsi de suite;
Il y a une violence de droit humaine qui se passe ici dans quelque services; Si quelqu'un vient demander du travail, il fait d'abord le test s'il reçu on le dit qu'on lui donnera le salaire de par exemple 100 dollars celui qui lui a fait engager lui dit qu'il faut que l'autre lui donnera la moitié de salaire pendant par exemple 4 mois, après il va continuer à avoir son 100d. Tout ça à cause de la pauvreté et manquement du travail même si on a étudié on ait rien. On ne sais pas quand on aura la solution les gens surtout les politiciens manquent l'esprit de partage; il peut avoir lui seul 100 maison, 100 hectares de champ 200 voitures. ainsi de suite. Et la guerre et tout ça nous en avons assez! Aidez-nous nos amis de World pulse Merci

The Young People of the DRC Are Out of Work

Hello again my friends.
Most of the young people in our country are unemployed, they lack places to go. Here we no longer give retirement to old people and this is the primary reason that those from 70-80 years old are in the care of the state. We are country which has so many mineral resources, but we do not have the creativity to take care of our population; we have become beggars for those who are able to give people jobs, who only give jobs to people in their own family and this is the virus which rules in the whole Republic. There is a boy who graduated in geology but he lacked gold. We have gold here in the East of the country. He became a cameraman for only soap; and so on.

There is an affront on human rights which happens here in several ways. If someone comes demanding word, he has to take a test if at first they say he will receive a salary of, for example $100, to which he has to commit and they must give him the other half of the money after, for example 4 months, after which he will have his $100. All of this causes poverty and lack of work even if we’ve never studied. We do not know when we will have the solution. The people and above all the politicians lack a spirit of generosity; they can have their own 100 houses, 100 hectare fields, 200 cars and so on, and the war and all of this they do not have to have. Help us, World Pulse friends. Thank you.

Merci pour votre poste

Mumbalima,

Merci pour votre contribution à World Pulse. Votre point sur le chômage pour les jeunes est certainement vrai. Je tiens à ajouter que pour les jeunes comme pour tous, un emploi est grand part de l'estime de soi. C'est vraiment important. Je pense quand quelqu'un est en travail, ils sont plus heureux et plus engager dans la création d'une société fonctionnant.
