In Tbilisi, in front of the Parliament, a rally, during which dozens of people demanded the authorities of the country to solve the unemployment problem, was held. The rally was held under the slogan "Bakradze the Loafer and Kublashvili the Fraud - you won't save yourselves from the unemployed".
The protesters turned their appeals to the first persons of the parliament - David Bakradze and the Head of the Judiciary Committee of the Parliament Pavle Kublashvili. They believe that the MPs are able to solve their problem. The problem is simple - they need jobs not to starve. The peculiarity of this action is that it has had gathered the youth, and not the old Soviet "hopeless" retirees.
The protesters claim that the unemployed are starving. Maybe they were exaggerating, but the fact that there is a huge mass of people who have no permanent source of income in Georgia - is a fact. And they often have nothing to eat.
Georgia - is country with a very low standard of living. To understand this, it is enough to walk in Tbilisi at least half an hour. Someone will surely ask you money. And it will not be a beggar or a tramp, but a neatly dressed intellectual.
The only way to escape from poverty - is to give the people jobs. But on the other hand, poverty in Georgia is specific, associated not only with the post-Soviet degradation and crisis. Now, experts and politicians are scratching their heads over how to pull the country out of total unemployment.
The problem is that employment issues are concerning politicians and experts, but not the Georgian authorities. They have their usual way - virtual reality simulations. According to President Saakashvili's statement, which he made only a few days ago, the unemployment rate in the country compared with last year fell by two percent. But independent study shows the opposite results. The NGO "Centre for Economic Policy Research" issued a report entitled "Employment and unemployment trend in Georgia". According to the report, compared with 1998, the unemployment rate increased from 12.4% to 16.3%. That is, the overall picture is straight opposite to the Georgian leader.
