The basic problems identified by INTUC Young Workers Council among Youth Workers are the widespread fears and insecurity attached in the workforce. This insecurity is generated primarily by the following facts at the work place:
(a) Contractual nature of employment
(b) Denial of Statutory Employment benefits

It is becoming a challenging job in the present scenario for the working class to keep their employment intact, secured for them and their dependents on them as well. Fear and insecurity have grasped the younger generation in the workplace. This insecurity at the workplace spreads to the home and community and creates loss of the confidence of the working people and to propel of the country as a whole.
