The elected MP of the Democratic Party, Jorida Tabaku, reacts after the INSTAT report that Albanians are working less in 2021, where it was said that “Only 59% of the population aged 15-64 are engaged in work.”
In a post on social media, Tabaku states that Albania continues to be emptied while the government convinces the Albanians that it has become their salvation.
According to the elected MP, the figures are an alarm bell for a country that is aging and for this the government has no real alternative to save it.
“Facts are always better than dreams, Churchill once said. Albania continues to be emptied while the government convinces the Albanians that it has become their salvation.
INSTAT employment data report not only a decrease in employment for Albanians aged 15-64 but also unmask the government through Albania’s depopulation policy.
If we make a comparison between the number of able-bodied population from 2013 until now we will see that it has decreased by 2.5% in 8 years. While the number of employees from the age of 15-64 already continues to fall.
The figures are an alarm bell for an aging country and for that the government has no real alternative to save it.
Economic figures are an indicator that should concern everyone. Reducing the number of employees means less money in the pockets of Albanians, more poverty.
For an economy that 40% of it is informal, the highest in the region, where unemployment is among the highest in the region and where emigration is the highest in the region and beyond. The signs are extremely disturbing.
The number of Albanians living below $ 5 / capita is expected to increase. The number of Albanians who may leave to seek a better life outside Albania is expected to increase.
While the government has no vision and no policy to restore opportunity and hope here. Albania has turned into a big prison where no one is asking to stay anymore”, Tabaku states.
