‘I Swallowed My Pride And Wear My Overalls Since I Can’t Get A Job’ – Financial Accounting Graduate Turned Floor Layer
Unemployment continues to be a cause of great distress to development in many african countries.
Although, many African youths are well-educated, they are unable to practice what they studied in school because of their inability to get a job.
However, these youths are also not wallowing in self-pity, they are improvising ways to put food on their table and become a better person in their community.
A South-African young graduate, Keneilwe Ledwaba, on her twitter page, shared how she had to resort to flooring as she couldn’t find a job.
