Creating jobs/employment is an issue of concern for governments and citizens alike. In developing countries, for example, there are about 150 million people who are unemployed.

With sustainable jobs that pay well, people are able to sustain themselves and their dependents. However, most of the unemployed and underemployed are either trapped in low-paying or low-productivity employment with little hope of improvement. They also tend to be young with limited professional experience and inadequate skills and training.
