AMMAN — Head of the Workers’ House Hamada Abu Nijmeh said that more than 50 percent of those employed in the Jordanian labor market are primary school graduates, according to Khaberni.
Abu Nijmeh said on Tuesday that a large part of the Kingdom’s labor market needs are for individuals who do not have university degrees, which calls for communicating the issue.
He said that the decision to stop admission to 42 idle majors encourages Jordanians to go toward the required majors, adding, however, that students also have the right to study anything they wish, even if not required by the market.
He also said that universities should give students the opportunity to get technical education that is needed in the Jordanian labor market.
Abu Najma pointed out that there is no clear authority in Jordan that determines how much the labor market needs university skills and specializations.
