INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The rate at which unemployed N.C.E. graduates roam the street in Edo State without a job has begun to draw the attention of both government and public individuals. It is important to know the meaning of the “unemployment” in order to fully understand the causes and effect. According to Ihingan (1980), unemployment is spreading with urbanization and education. But the industrial sector has failed to expand along the growth of labour force thereby increasing urban unemployment. He went further to say that there are educated unemployed graduates who fail to get jobs due to structural rigidities and lack of entrepreneurial skills.

A person is s aid to be unemployed if in spite of his willingness and capacity to work, he cannot do owing to reasons inherent in organization of commodity product. This is a state of affairs in the labour market where the supply of labour is greater than the available resources.

According to Harvey (1985), unemployment exists when people are capable and willing to work but not able to find suitable paid employment. The problems of unemployment date back to the year 1930, even before the great world economic depression. In Nigeria, specifically Edo State by the year 1960, school leavers secured jobs with relative eased, skilled labour especially NCE graduates was scarce and difficult to come by and it was the employers who looked for them.
