    This issue sums up Sri Lanka's economic problems. The government does not have jobs to give out. If no is in the job now it's a new job. Do we need the job? Generally not, so 2 people do the work that one can do. A visit to many government offices provides evidence of that. So citizens money is wasted, because governments don't have money. Jobs have to be created in the private sector for the country to progress and when we sweep up graduates to useless work we limit initiative and limit the growth of real jobs.
