The unemployment rate has had no recent decrease despite the introduction of new roles in the IT sector. In addition to this, the coronavirus pandemic has forced numerous companies to switch to digital tools hence further increasing the unemployment rate and eliminating certain job roles in companies due to the switch to remote work. This adverse effect has reached Pakistan, as well as numerous workers, have either lost their jobs or unable to find a job.
In a nutshell, our computer systems have become our office and the way of working from home has made this the new normal for office works as people actually prefer work-from-home over the conventional scenario.
