Despite billions in foreign aid most Afghans cant find fulltime jobs

by Kathy Gannon, The Associated Press Posted Oct 24, 2013 12:18 am MDT Despite billions in foreign aid, most Afghans can’t find full-time jobs KABUL – Hundreds of men, some on crutches, all wearing tattered clothing, gather shortly before dawn at major intersections throughout Kabul and other Afghan cities. Displaying primitive tools such as a level or a trowel, they seek labour that is often backbreaking, always temporary and will earn just a few dollars for a day’s work.Employers circle the intersections, eyeing the crowds. Usually they are looking for one or two workers for minor construction tasks. Before they even stop, dozens of men swarm their vehicle, fighting with each other to get one of perhaps five or six jobs available that morning.Despite billions of dollars from abroad to develop this impoverished country since the U.S.-led invasion toppled the Taliban regime in 2001, roughly 12 million people, or eight out of every 10 working-age Afghan are unskilled day labourers, according to an International Labor Organization report. Most land only temporary jobs.In rural areas, work is also temporary — but it’s also seasonal and often illegal, the report said. Some of the biggest employers, opium-producing poppy farmers, provide tens of thousands of short-term jobs.But almost everywhere, the pay is meagre. Afghans with jobs, whether part-time or full-time, earn on average $410 per year — or about $1 per day, according to the World Bank.Mir Afghan, a day labourer standing on line one recent morning at a Kabul intersection, says he hasn’t worked in 13 days and is $1,260 in debt. He said neighbours occasionally help him out and local stores give him food on credit. One neighbour recently loaned him $9 to buy medicine for one of his six children.At Mir Afghan’s home in a congested neighbourhood on the edge of Kabul, his wife, Sabar Gul, started crying when asked about the family’s meals. Cradling her coughing and feverish infant son in her arms, she said she has enough food to cook only one meal each day and they rarely can afford to eat meat.The International Labor Organization report, released last year, offered several grim statistics: nearly half of Afghans don’t have enough to eat; 18 per cent of children under 15 years old are working; and 82 per cent of Afghans are illiterate.Most businesses are not registered and thus do not pay taxes. That means the government, riddled with corrupt officials, is heavily dependent on international aid as well as on the black market — most often linked to the country’s flourishing drug trade.Ten years ago the International Labor Organization warned that long-term stability and prosperity would elude Afghanistan if employment, the kind that guarantees a regular income, wasn’t made a key component of projects to reconstruct this war-ravaged country.But aid organizations were reluctant to get involved in job creation, the private sector remained stagnant despite significant investment in telecommunications, and many wealthy Afghans chose to put their money in other countries.Nowadays, the report said, most Afghans cannot find permanent work, and even temporary work is drying up as international aid money dwindles ahead of the 2014 deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO combat troops from Afghanistan.“There is a serious looming problem with unemployment in Afghanistan,” said Graeme Smith, senior Afghanistan analyst for the Brussels-based International Crisis Group.“Ordinary workers have depended heavily on construction, trucking and other sectors that saw boom times because of the presence of foreign troops and aid projects — and there’s likely a coming bust, as soldiers withdraw and development budgets shrink,” he said. “This could badly affect stability and security.”A day labourer works two, maybe three days a week, said Maroof Qaderi, president of the National Union of Afghanistan Workers, Employees. They are often heavily indebted to banks, family and friends.To pay his bills, Mir Afghan has taken his oldest son, Mohammad, out of school and put him to work making carpets and doing odd jobs.But Mohammed, a lean 19-year-old, says he keeps up his studies at night. “I don’t want my life to be the shovel. I want to finish high school, and go to a government college to study economics,” he said.For the past several mornings, several university students have mingled among the scores of men, including Mir Afghan, looking for work at the intersection in Koti Sangi, a district in the heart of the Afghan capital.Waheedullah, 22, says his family has only enough money to pay for his attending classes part-time, and he’s worried he won’t be able to finish his studies. He gets up at 4:30 a.m. to bicycle to Koti Sangi, where he hopes to find a couple of days of work.Waheedullah, who uses just one name, blamed the weak economy on rampant corruption, saying Afghan officials and their foreign partners have siphoned off most of the money that’s come to Afghanistan.“Foreigners came here to make jobs for themselves, but nothing has changed for the lives of Afghans,” he said. “I think Afghanistan is going in a very bad direction. No one is doing anything about the problems of the poor people.”Khwaja Tamim, a house painter who said he’s come to Koti Sangi every morning for the last six years, says jobs are dwindling as people expect the worst after the final withdrawal next year of U.S. and NATO combat forces.“People are scared,” he said, noting “the suicide attackers, the jobless, the criminal gangs and always the rumours between Afghans.”On Monday a car bomb exploded at Koti Sangi, killing the driver and creating a stampede as workers ran for safety. Police were unsure whether militants or criminal gangs were behind the bombing.“From one second to the next you don’t know what can happen, whether a bomb goes off right here and our lives are finished,” Tamim said one day earlier in an interview at Koti Sangi.“I have experience of the civil war,” he said, referring to the period when rival mujahedeen groups who forced the Russians out of Afghanistan turned their guns on each other, killing as many as 50,000 civilians before the Taliban took power in 1996.“I think the future will be worse than the civil war.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

With special event UN to mark Victory over Slavery Haiti and Beyond

The High-Level Official Opening of the exhibit “Victory over Slavery: Haiti and Beyond” hosted by the Permanent Missions of Haiti and Jamaica to the United Nations will take place at 6 p.m. today in the Visitor Centre at UN Headquarters.UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will officially open the exhibit and is expected to say: “The story of the Haitian Revolution and the resilience of its people, who demanded nothing more than to be granted their human rights, continues to inspire.” Irina Bokova, Director General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will be also be in attendance, as well as a number UN Ambassadors.. With an overview of the Transatlantic Slave Trade as a backdrop, the exhibit focuses on the slaves’ struggle for independence in Haiti and the establishment of the Republic in 1804. The Haitian insurrection is recognized as a milestone by the liberation movements that fought for the abolition of slavery.The exhibition also showcases the design of the Permanent Memorial to Honour the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, The Ark of Return by Rodney Leon, which will be erected at UN Headquarters in early 2015. The American architect of Haitian descent also designed the African Burial Ground National Monument in New York City. He was selected as the winning design of an international competition in August 2013.The Memorial will stand as a constant reminder of the courage of slaves, abolitionists and unsung heroes who helped to end slavery. The exhibit highlights the UNESCO Slave Route Project, launched 20 years ago to break the silence surrounding the slave trade and its consequences.At 5:00 pm, the author of the film They are We, Emma Christopher and architect Rodney Leon will hold a discussion.The They are We documentary tells the story of the Cuban descendants of an enslaved African woman who visited the village of origin of their ancestor in Sierra Leone. The village was located thanks to an Australian professor from the University of Sydney, Dr Emma Christopher who was able to trace it through traditional dances and songs.“Photographs of the documentary They are We are currently on display in the exhibit, in the context of the Film Festival on Slavery. There will be a free, outdoor screening of the film on Friday, July 11 at Joyce Kilmer Park (161st Street and Grand Concourse) as part of the Bronx Museum of the Arts First Fridays! series in partnership with the African Film Festival. The International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which is marked on 25 March, was established by the General Assembly (GA) in 2007. read more

TfL criticises dangerous stunt by darts fan filmed sliding down Tube escalators

first_imgTop night last night, but this has to be the highlight 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/yMqDvOoVML— James Gower (@__gower) December 21, 2017 “I’m injured but it’s all worth it – I mainly hurt my knee and it’s bruised but it’ll go.“The gentleman asked me if I was OK and I said yes and went on my way.”He said he woke up the next day unable to move but at the time he had consumed enough alcohol not to feel the pain. A TfL spokesman told the Telegraph Mr Andrews was an “idiot” and said in a statement: “Safety is our top priority and pranks like this are dangerous for not only those involved but also to other customers.”We have frequent PA announcements reminding customers to be careful when using escalators, and we also run safety campaigns throughout the year to encourage customers to take care whilst traveling on our network.” The video has been seen ten million times, and has even been enjoyed in Parliament, with David Lammy MP commenting on Twitter: “MIND THE GAP.”Actor John Barrowman tweeted: “What an idiot but too funny.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Sliding into 2018 exactly like this 😂😩😩😩 https://t.co/hg0mFcpAh4— Jamie Ohara (@Mrjamieohara1) December 21, 2017 Transport for London has criticised a darts fan who decided to travel down the escalators by sliding on the chute in the middle.However, his plan appeared badly thought-through, and he was filmed bashing into an emergency stop button in the eye-watering footage, as well as falling onto the escalator stairs at the bottom.22-year-old Freddie Andrews from Tonbridge, Kent, said the idea to slide down the middle came to him after he had enjoyed 10 pints while watching the darts.In the video, he is seen slipping down the chute at speed as his friends laugh in the background, before being forced into a backflip and landing on the floor.He said he landed at the feet of a surprised commuter after his painful journey.Mr Andrews, who works at Asda, told The Sun: “It wasn’t planned, it was a one off because there was no one else on the escalator, so I thought I would chance it. His friend, who posted the video, said Mr Andrews has “cuts and bruises” after the stunt.last_img read more

The 5 at 5 Tuesday

first_imgEVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you the five stories you need to know as you head out the door.1. #JOBSWATCH: Up to 1,300 jobs will be created over the next three years by the Kerry Group as it builds a new campus in Kildare. The new campus – for which Kildare beat off bids from London and Amsterdam – will employ 800 people when it opens, as well as 400 in construction, and potentially 100 more when the centre is fully commissioned in four years’ time.2. #COURTS: A Sligo widow has successfully sued the killers of her husband for €720,000 in damages. The High Court’s award makes Margaret Madden the first person to successfully sue the people responsible for a the murder of a family member.3. #FARMERS: Up to 15,000 farmers took the streets of Dublin this afternoon in protest at potential cuts to the EU’s master budget – which they say could sound the death knell for Irish agriculture. The Irish Farmers’ Association says possible cuts to the budget for 2014 to 2020, which will be agreed shortly, could mean major cutbacks in CAP payments which Irish farmers need to keep going. Simon Coveney says he understands the farmers’ concerns.4. #GREECE: There have been major protests in Greece as German chancellor Angela Merkel arrived for a meeting with Greek premier Antonis Saramas in Athens today. 6,500 police offers were mobilised for her visit, with Merkel the focus of much ire among the Greek public for Germany’s role in insisting on harsh austerity measures in exchange for European bailouts.5. #NOBEL PRIZE: The second of this year’s Nobel Prizes – in physics – has been awarded to US and French researchers for their work in quantum physics – that could one day open the way to revolutionary computers. Serge Haroche and David Wineland’s work could see computers transcend the current system where all data is recorded through a combination of zeroes and ones.last_img read more

Apple souhaite interdire la vente du Samsung Galaxy S3 aux ÉtatUnis

first_imgApple souhaite interdire la vente du Samsung Galaxy S3 aux État-UnisLa guerre des brevets entre Samsung et Apple se poursuit. La marque à la pomme a déposé une demande d’injonction préliminaire mardi soir. L’objectif : interdire la vente du Galaxy S3 à quelques semaines de son lancement aux États-Unis. Et une confrontation de plus dans l’affaire qui oppose Apple à Samsung. La firme californienne a engagé une nouvelle procédure contentieuse aux États-Unis contre Samsung. Apple espère ainsi interdire la vente du dernier smartphone de la marque coréenne, le Galaxy S3. Celui-ci devrait bientôt débarquer sur le marché américain, l’occasion pour Apple de montrer qu’il est le seul maître sur son terrain. La marque à la pomme accuse en effet Samsung d’avoir violé des brevets et a saisi le tribunal de San José, au nord de la Californie. Dans la procédure il est notamment question de contrefaçon de la technologie Siri, puisque Samsung propose lui aussi une commandes vocales, le S-voice.  “Les allégations d’Apple sont infondées”, a alors riposté la marque coréenne dans un communiqué. “Nous les contesterons vigoureusement et ferons la démonstration devant le tribunal que le Galaxy S3 est innovant et unique”.Pas d’accord à l’amiable À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ? Les deux fabricants de tablettes et téléphones avait déjà lancé plusieurs procédures liés à leurs brevets respectifs dans près d’une dizaine de pays. Les PDG des deux marques avaient pourtant été convoqués le mois dernier chez le juge afin de trouver un accord à l’amiable. Apple et Samsung avaient alors tous deux campé sur leur position, s’accusant mutuellement de viol de brevets.Dernier fleuron de sa gamme de téléphones multifonctions, le Samsung Galaxy S3 est sorti le 29 mai en France. Lancé dans 28 pays, essentiellement en Europe et au Moyen-Orient, il s’apprête à débarquer en Chine ce jeudi et sera disponible dans 145 pays au total d’ici la fin du mois de juillet.Le 7 juin 2012 à 19:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Photo: ReutersSyrian state vehicles, accompanied by Russian military police, entered an area of Deraa city on Thursday to raise the national flag over an area held by rebels for years, witnesses said, leaving President Bashar al-Assad poised for another big victory in the seven-year-long Syrian conflict.Cranes from the state-run Deraa municipal council erected a flag pole near the mosque where the eruption of large protests in March 2011 was widely seen as heralding the start of the conflict.Government forces backed by Russia have recovered swathes of rebel-held Deraa province at the border with Jordan in a major offensive that got underway last month and has forced many rebels to give up territory in negotiated surrender deals.Rebels holed up in part of Deraa city are still in talks with Russian officers, with many of them aiming to secure safe passage to opposition-held areas of northern Syria, rebel officials said. The talks were expected to resume on Thursday.A large convoy of Russian military police was expected to enter the devastated area later.Some 2,000 rebel fighters are holed up in the opposition-held part of Deraa city, along with their families. Many want to leave due to fear of how the government will treat them.last_img read more
