Unemployed until further notice

20 January 2014, 12:49
DURBAN - In this lovely land we call home, it is rather a huge difficulty to find employment. I have tried for more than 3 years now and I know for a fact that there are more young South Africans, who face the same difficulty. Why is our country not expanding? Why are there not enough well known franchises opening? Why does the government rely on the private sector to dictate our economy? Whatever the reasons for this huge problem, it is going to cause a pile-up for the next group of induviduals who complete their schooling career. 
The more we beg and plea with this current regime, the more they go out of their way to piss us off even further. When will the insanity end. Hopefully with the up coming elections, but I doubt it. The ruling party is no such thing. For the twenty-something South African it is tough to get going. In a country far away there are many South Africans enjoying the riches of working abroad. As soon as they decide to return they struggle to get a break and eventually go back to where the grass is a bit greener. The expat lifestyle is a rather appealing one and there are many benefits, but why can't we enjoy that in our own country?
Not even a university degree can save you. Truth is there simply aren't enough jobs out there. Our sad excuse of a government is not doing anything to create jobs either. They spend tax money with reckless abandon. Fancy cars, property upgrades and personal business trips, without budgets, is not how I want my taxes to be spent. 
Be realistic South Africa. This is the time for us to be valued as human beings. We need to get rid of this virus. The elections will be crucial and we all need to go out there and vote. I can't fix this problem and my solution is not a strong one, but it is the only reason I came back. I want to find work in my home country. I came back to vote locally and I hope all of you can come out in huge number to do the same. Hopefully more job-interviews will be around the corner in the near future, but until then I remain unemployed until further notice.
