The result: unemployment has been on the rise, despite India supposedly being one of the brighter spots in a slowing global economy. Traditionally, labor-intensive industries are beginning to increasingly mechanize their operations. While it makes them more productive and profitable, it also shrinks job opportunities. Large manufacturers are also trimming operations, throwing many jobs into jeopardy. Others blame higher levels of automation for the job squeeze. The public sector is shrinking: Government jobs, which were 19.5 million in 1996-97, are about 17 million today. Not only are jobs fewer than before but those that are created are precarious and badly paid because of the informalisation of the economy. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
