More people working, than required

Disguised unemployment means more people working than required. Disguised unemployment occur when people do not have productive full time employment, reasons are

  • People on sickness
  • people doing part-time work
  • people forced to take early retirement and redundancy
  • Disguised unemployment could also include people doing jobs that are completely unproductive

For example, In any type work like agriculture or farming field require 5 person but people engaged in this activity is 8 then this unemployment for 3 labours is called disguised unemployment.
