Theauthor argues that the unemployment rate amid the youths in SouthAfrica is increasing. The author presents that around 30% of youthsbetween the ages of 25 and 34 are jobless in South Africa (Mannak,2009). Low education level is one of the reasons leading to theunemployment problem. It has been argued that two-thirds of theadults in South Africa did not have high school diplomas in 2005,while in the same year only 8.4% of the population possessed atertiary qualification. According to the author, governmentstatistics indicate that 24% of South Africans above 25 years old areilliterate (Mannak, 2009). It is due to this illiteracy that has ledto youths being unemployed in South Africa. The author concludes thatthe growing crisis of unemployment is due to having many youths notbeing in school, many drop outs or youths not having some sort ofhigh school or tertiary diplomas.
