Over 28,000 professionals have signed a petition, addressed to the ministry of labor, to take immediate action on the matter. "It is unrealistic for anyone to plan that far ahead for their future actions and resign in advance not knowing state of the issue in next three months," reads the petition. Part of the problem is that many companies are unwilling to wait for three months to have a person join them, many cited in the report say.
