The term, “Unemployment” literally applies to all categories of people that are presently without work. It has come to have specific meaning in contemporary discussion of all social and economic policies. Only these person not at work for more than a specific minimum period of time and who are able and willing to work, and also actively seeking for work are generally considered to be truly unemployed. It is a state of being unemployed, which always leads to a very serious evil. It can also be regarded as the amount of the unused labour.
The appropriate precise definition given to the term “unemployment” varies from one country to the other.
