Angola has about 100,000 unemployed

Luanda – Around 100,000 jobs were closed in Angola since the beginning of the economic crisis (late 2014), putting unemployment in the same number of workers controlled by Unta-Cs.

This number, according to the Secretary-General of Unta, Manuel Viage, also reflects the entry into force of the new general labor law which has some disadvantageous implications for workers.

Speaking on “The implications of the current general labor law and its impact on the legal labor relationship,” he explained that official data, both statistical and from the Ministries of Public Administration, Labor and Social Security and the Economy, show a high unemployment rate from 20 to 24 percent.

The event was announced on Thursday in Luanda, on the fringes of a seminar held on the occasion of the World Day for Decent Work (7 October) under the motto: Let’s change the rules.

To circumvent this situation, he stressed that the Angolan State has to create an economic environment that leads to more investments, as unemployment is only fought with the creation of companies and new employment opportunities.

He praised the initiative of the new political leadership to redouble efforts to attract investment into the country in order to reduce this unemployment rate by Angolans, believing that soon there will be a better economic environment with the creation of new jobs that the union intends to support .
