Void

/not valid or legally binding/completely empty/

*Origin French – vuide*

Today in South Africa a void persistently makes its presence felt among the youth as far as a lack of plan to rescue them from the misery of unemployment is concerned. One thing we have to acknowledge at the outset of a discussion for job creation to which is an essential aspect to the development of the working class is that you need to connect that discussion with labour reserve, which is whether you do have people who are skilled enough to move into industries that make a country prosperous. You will also have to acknowledge the skills-needs of your nation and position a mechanism in place to address training and teaching in the industries that adds up to the smooth running of an economy.

In South Africa, like in any other nation out there that has a vision you need to be mindful that our youth is varied. Some are educated at varsity level while others have left high school with only a matric certificate and had not been able to progress further due to lack of resources, while others are drop outs that could not succeed in the structures of our formal education system due to its poor form, and lastly others are dropped outs due to social ills either inflicted upon them or self inflicted. Thus lack of job opportunities affects all people from different social conditions and experiences.
