Unemployment rate climbs steadily in capitalist society

Western countries widely advertise their richness by mobilizing publicity means.

However, they have a legion of unemployed.

According to a report, 218 000 Americans lost their jobs in a week until Oct 26. More than 70 000 and 16 000 Spanish people in the service and agricultural sectors respectively were sacked in October. The jobless people amount to over 354 000 in Australia.

The total number of unemployed reached 3.36 million in the third quarter of the year in France, while the number was 2.23 million in Germany in September. A German survey institution said that the number of unemployed would grow in the near future. Experts assert that unemployment will not improve as long as economic stagnation goes on.

Entrepreneurs dismiss workers to get out of business aggravation caused by continued economic crisis.

The jobless beg for money from passersby on neon-lighted streets. The degenerated people take drugs without hesitation and even kill themselves in disappointment and despair.

Shortly ago, the medical association of the US said that more than 450 000 locals aged between 25 and 60 committed suicide between 1999 and 2016. According to it, the suicide rate rose by 41 percent in this period. In particular, suicide in rural communities was 25 percent higher than that in cities. The growing suicide is reportedly attributed to poverty, low income and unemployment.
