In our current reality, yes, government is responsible for solving unemployment. People need to be managed to a certain degree to prevent inevitable imbalances between classes and provide the necessary infrastructure for jobs.

What the government may need to do in the future may change though, as technology is making more jobs obsolete. The "problem" of abundance being created and jobs being lost needs to be solved. This could require something like a fixed universal income by adding a value added tax to goods.. What people would do in this new leisure-based society is still yet to be determined. Maybe life itself will be digitized by the time we reach this point and any income will be obsolete. Who knows.

This question has been in my mind for awhile and here is my view.

Yes unemployment can only be solved by the state. The state has all of the finances and materials to create many many many businesses that can create enough job opportunities for the majority can be empowered and later on employ others through their businesses.
How to solve unemployment.
-limit the imports
-make the foreign products expensive.If foreign milk is 1 dollar and american dollar is also 1 dollar make the foreign one 2 dollars by law and the state will win the 1 dollar from it.
That will make the foreign products more expensive and people will avoid them buying more products of his/her country.That will give more money to the state (or induviduals) so more factories will be created,more people will work,more products will be created,the state will have more exports so more money that will help it create more factories giving even more jobs.
Whats your thought?

best thing a govenmenr can do for their population is a national socialist style mechanisation creating lots of surplusses that can the be creativly used by others.

It might seem funny, but the answer is in the meaning and purpose of 'government.'

A government is the system or group of people governing an organized community, often a state. A government is like a clan with the purpose to govern the whole family or whole nation with powers of financial, military and civil laws. The main purpose of government is to seek the welfare of the civilians and to fulfill their need for the betterment of the nation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government

an organization that officially manages and controls a country or region, creating laws, collecting taxes, providing public services, etc.

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/government?q=Government#dataset-cacd

Based on the definitions solving unemployment problem is one of the government's primary functions. BUT don't shift responsibility for your unemployment on government only: you must do something that depends on you so that you can get a job, while gov-t should help you by creating favorable conditions for your employment.

No necessarily, Cena, a government could simply create a level playing field for the 'players'.

Yes I think they are responsible for solving unemployment problems because the more they create jobs it curbs the level of unemployment in that country.

Sometimes we push all the responsibility to the government without doing anything to solve our problems. In my own opinion it is the joint effort of the both parties that is the government and the citizens in solving unemployment, although the government has a large role to play.

Of course, the government is not the only party responsible for unemployment, but it is the government that creates either favorable or adverse conditions for employment in the country.

To a certain extent, yes they are.  In any given society people must be able to do things to support themselves or the government must support them if there isn't any other means available.  We're taught in the US that you have to work hard and "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" and other bullshit like this, but at a certain point our system is unsustainable.  Technology advances and one person can perform the work of dozens if not more, and that's not even considering automation.  Automation will make many jobs obsolete, so where are these people going to go to support themselves and their family?  You can't expect someone who has done one thing his entire life to start learning a new career from scratch, it's just not reasonable.  Jobs get phased out, but society doesn't really take care of those people afterwards. 

Companies should be incentivized to make more money, and make progress technologically, with automation or more efficiency or whatever.  But what shouldn't be happening is the majority of the profits just going back into the company.  We should be working as a society to make jobs easier for everyone in the workforce, in the country and eventually the entire world.  Instead we remove the jobs, tell people to fucking pull themselves up by their bootstraps(which is literally impossible to do by the way,) and let the owners and shareholders collect more and more wealth.  Eventually this can't continue, but we aren't quite there yet. 

This is where government should step in.  Regulations are EXTREMELY important to protect smaller businesses and average workers as well.  Look at Comcast, they basically dominate the entire market for cable in most of the US because no one is even allowed to compete with them.  Taxpayers paid for the lines to be built, and Comcast basically lobbies lawmakers to disallow anyone else to use them.  They have a stranglehold over most areas and no one can even compete, therefore they can price however they want, and treat customers however they want.  Now imagine if every industry was like this.  You need regulations to stop industries from exploiting everyone.

I realize I went a bit off topic from unemployment, but I believe all of these things are interconnected.  This whole "I got mine" mentality is never going to be able to work long term for the world.

There are people that are just plain lazy and just don't wanna work but in general, yes, the government is responsible for solving unemployment. It is their task to make sure that public schools are providing quality education to students so that they can use it when they graduate. It is their task to make sure that the economy is stable for businesses to thrive so that employment will be given to everyone who needs it.
