A new report published on Tuesday by the Adva Center for Equality and Social Justice shines light on the salary gap between Jews and Arabs, men and women, and even different ethnic groups of Israelis.
According to an analysis by the Dialog Consulting for Human Resources Ltd., the average salary in the high tech sector has steadily risen since mid-2012. However, there were two conflicting trends in a lot of high tech jobs during 2013. While the number of jobs that were available was 4% higher than it was back in 2012, primarily due to the fact that there was a 15% jump in web software developer positions, the number of non-web software development positions has fallen by 2%.
A recent data has revealed the hike in numbers of Israelis out of work in October. Statistics indicate that 14,420 Israelis are currently unemployed. According to the Israel Employment Services, the number of people who lost their jobs in October has reached a new high in comparison to the 28% rise in July and 24.7% spike in October 2012.
