Younews.in - Economy growing at 7%, jobs at 1% - Times of India http://www.younews.in/news/economy-growing-at-7-jobs-at-1-times-of-india/ While the economy is growing at just over 7% per year, jobs increased by just 1.1% last year, according to a recently-released report covering eight key sectors of the non-farm economy. An earlier report had pegged joblessness at a fiveyear high of 5% in 2015, and under-employment at a staggering 35% of the over-15 years labour force. Seen in this context, the government is facing a growing employment crisis which its various initiatives are unable to address. Fri, 19 May 2017 11:05:08 UTC en
