Is there any relationship between unemployment and poverty? Explain.
Poverty and unemployment are very closely related. Due to unemployment the income of people is reduced to a large extent and they are unable to get even the basic facilities like education, health facility, proper sanitation, etc.
Unemployment increases the number of dependent on working population due to which per head consumption expenditure declines and a vast majority of people have to live in poverty.
These are the reasons for which government has started many employment programmes to remove poverty like Prime Minister Rozgar Yojana, Swarna Jayanti Shahri Rozgar Yojana, etc.
