In many countries there is a shortage of suitable people for essential jobs. What do you think are the reasons for this problem and what steps could be taken to solve the problem?
In today’s world, it is certainly true that many countries are facing with the shortage of labors to run businesses and services. This is primarily because of shift among people to rather go for better options abroad or move towards unconventional jobs. However, if the companies give lucrative offers, possibility is that the skilled workers will stay.
The main reason is time and the budget. Often doing a professional course requires lot of money as well as time, this in many cases is a issue. For instance, to be a doctor in India, you not only are required to clear a tough exam, but also, seven years of study and three years of practice, after which you are termed as a professional doctor. This requires, besides time, lot of money. As a result, only a handful of people are able to become efficient doctors.
Secondly, most of the countries are developing and are not very strong economically. As a result, the skilled labors are not getting paid, as though they can in a developed country. This is causing a shift of people from their country to the one paying high wages.
I suppose the best way to deal with this problem is subsidize more budgets to education systems and open more positions in each professional line. For example, Increasing the number of medical colleges, would ease out some competition, allowing people to follow their dreams. Moreover, enhancing the minimum wage in technical jobs also attracts many people to pursue in this line and decrease unpleasantness of work from wage conditions.
Overall, shortage of employees in some jobs in inevitable, one cannot deny that if pragmatic steps are taken, the issue can be solved.
