Jobs in Army and Police

In order to live, the unemployed rural youths have no alternative except to apply for land to earn a living. Their applications, however, are often shelved indefinitely on turned down by the authorities on the ground that all available land has been reserved for foreign investors and local developers and that the government is not in a financial position to open up new land. Therefore, many of them have been forced to leave their homes to join the army and police to keep a living. When the authorities called for recruits to the army forces, the police usually had to be summoned to control the milling crowds of applicants in front of the recruiting office.
