Nine jobless sisters in Badin protest for employment

Nine educated but jobless sisters of Badin protested in front of Hyderabad Press Club demanding government jobs from the authorities, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The eldest sister, named Ayesha, talking to the TV channel said despite constant protests and a number of applications submitted for various jobs they got no work ever.

“We all now work in people’s homes to make both ends meet,” Ayesha added.

“We have only a brother who is a daily wager and his earnings do not support the house expenses. We need jobs to make our livelihood better,” she further said.
