    Organic agriculture, with some government incentives for investment, is one where their energies can be utilised, certainly not in some non-productive public sector office jobs.

    Hi guys, You should be able to market your self in the labour market where you will find plenty of great job opportunities and much higher earning potential where you can do much better than jobs at the public sector which is lethargic and in efficient.

    Lol, wonder if these clowns realize that the more they protest, the more difficult it is for the government to attract FDI and other foreign organizations to setup in Sri Lanka, there by making it more difficult to find employment....

    Change your attitude and make yourselves employable. There are enough and more jobs with skills needed in the country, that we have had to import labour and skills. The Government is not there to give you unproductive jobs but to create opportunities, which you have to take.
