In the older rural society, neither poverty nor unemployment had current meanings. People would cultivate their lands or take care of usable animals for living. Every person was somehow busy. But today is different. Living in cities needs plans and program and as witnessed living in the contemporary rural areas is not like the older times anymore.
Today, poverty and unemployment are vastly interconnected and not independent from each other. If we look at areas with higher poverty, we see higher rates of unemployment.

I definitely unemployment causes poverty. It only causes poverty but has a ripple effect that causes violence.
We need jobs to have an income that helps are us to meet our daily needs. Unemployment means we do not have an income that allows us to buy food or pay rent. In many countries, unemployed individuals are not supported by their government. When people are deprive from basic human needs, such as shelter and food, people goes to extreme measures to have these needs. These extreme measures are usually stealing, which could be petty theft or even murder.

Tania,
Corruption is one of the reasons that Governments have not been able to provide suitable economies. It has various faces and pictures in different countries.

I think it does cause overall poverty,k however if you loose a job just temporarily, then for sure it doesnt cause poverty. Well, thats what i think.

Personally I think unemployment causes poverty. Why?
Unemployment means that there is not enough industries in a country to employ people there, so that many families do not have sufficient funds for living. This has an impact to the economy of the country because the purchasing power decreases...

I think first you need to look at why people are unemployed.

Lack of education.
Mental health issues.
Physical disabilities.
Lack of job opportunities.
Lack of economic growth and sustainablity.
Social and political conflict.
Lack of affordable transport links.
Lack of access to benefits.

All these are possible reasons for unemployment. Suffering any of these could cause unemployment which then inevitably leads to poverty.

It's a secondary factor leading to poverty...
If unemployed for a certain length of time with no other sources to earn from , yes , it causes a short coming of $$$ & this slowly , but is what's next leading to the deprivation of basic necessities - That's poverty . secretive

Yes it can lead to poverty because people will not have a way to provide for their families. This can lead to workers not being able to sell their products and people going into debt. That can cause the economy to crash.

It's more a case of whether or not obtaining a university education reduces poverty or not. My current research is on this topic. I'm conducting now an online survey in South Africa for graduates from the following universities:

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University
Rhodes University
University of Fort Hare
Walter Sisulu University
University of Limpopo
University of Venda
North-West University

So if you're a graduate from one of these unis, whu not take the survey here:
https://www.isurvey.soton.ac.uk/6089

You can help improve the understanding of poverty - a major problem in South Africa and other parts of the world.

What is Poverty?

Well there r so many definitions and faces of poverty,but i would just like us to take cognizance of a little fact about poverty and unemployment.
Who is qualified to be unemployed? Simple it's anyone who is qualified to be Employed so that life can be better for that person,but is unemployed.Now being Employed is one of those steps into getting a good life and being able to live above poverty Level.Hope u get it?

Now coming back to definition of poverty, one of them is that "Poverty is a situation u find urself in whereby u have what it it takes to live a good life either by right as a citizen of a country or by right as an educated or Work-ripe human being,but can't ". Unemployment is just a perfect example,u r a graduate,or so and u r qualified to live a good life,but u can't find a job,thereby u are unable to above poverty level and u find urself a poor man stricken with poverty despite ur Qualifications.

Men all am saying is YES Unemployment is the numeru no of the numerous causes of Poverty.

Employment is the resource to source needs. Thus poverty is the consequence of unemployment
