Does your country not have the medicine it needs? There are plenty of people capable of making and even inventing those medicines who are out of work.
Need roads and ports? Plenty of those who can build them are out of work.

A lot of highly skilled workers are out of work. More want work that matters, they want to make medicines which will get to people at prices which will save lives, or build buildings which create energy and are good for those who live in them, or invent knew ways of farming. They want to create energy sources which don’t dump carbon into the atmosphere and they want to build spaceships and get off the rock.
These people exist, and they are hungry for meaningful work, for good work. Those who are out of work simply want a decent living, those who are working but hate their jobs will work for less if they are taken care of.

They can be used to bypass the old industries, to create the future in countries who didn’t win the last few technological and economic cycles.
They are lying on the ground, waiting only for those wise enough to offer them work that matters.
