MEANING OF EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT
Employment is work done to earn a living
Employment is work that one does to earn money. Some people work for other people. For instance, teachers work for the government or the owner of a private school. Some other people are self employed. For example, many watch repairers, shopkeepers, mechanics and medical doctors’ work for themselves.
Unemployment means having no work to do to earn a living. Unemployment is a situation when one does not have a job which brings income. It is the opposite of employment. Underemployment is when one does not have a job that brings in sufficient income. For instance, underemployment occurs when a worker is only fully occupied for three hours, when he should be working for eight hours a day. He may spend more of his time reading newspapers in the office.
