    I passed out from the University of Moratuwa in the 1970s and could not find employment in the state sectors. I or We did not protest. We visited private companies and spoke to Personnel Managers giving self introductions. I got a job as an assistance engineer in a company importing printing machines. I has studies electrical power engineering. I worked with then until I got proper employment. I am retired now and work as an IT consultant. The lesson is "Look for Opportunities. Do not wait for them to come to you".

    It will be interesting to know what subjects they graduated in. There is no demand by employers for other than engineering, science or commerce graduates. After wasting their youthful days studying unemployable skills free of charge they have no right to protest. They had the choice to make.

    Also it is important that the Universities scrap these useless junk degrees which are a waste of time, money and resources of the country.Are there no 'Academics' in this Island to take these decisions? If not, get foreign advice to upgrade the countries education system that would be online with the current century.
