Working Men and Women

Some more fascinating research from our colleagues at JDC’s macroeconomic research institute, the Taub Center

Israel’s employment problem cuts across all major population groups. 

The largest employment declines have been among the Muslim, Druze and Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox Jewish) men.

On the other hand, in all female populations, we’ve seen significant increases in employment. Among non-Haredi Jewish women, employment rates are now higher than the G7 average. Among all other women, the gaps are closing fast, since their employment rates are rising more quickly than the G7 rates.
