Program for employing Jerusalem Arabs in public sector underway - 2022-08-22 12:07:14



Minister of Jerusalem Ze'ev Elkin: Israel has a substantial interest in integrating East Jerusalem residents into the high-quality employment market.

Against a background of a dismal employment situation for the Arab population of East Jerusalem, the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage is launching a trial program for training East Jerusalem Arabs for jobs in the public sector: in the municipality, state-owned companies, and government ministries. The program will be run by the Yesodot Center, and will initially provide practical training to 60-70 participants from East Jerusalem for work in the public sector.

VOJ Comment - The Arab population in Jerusalem suffers from a few issues, which limits their employment.  Firstly, the population for the most part, refuses to "normalize" its relationship with the Jewish run government, both on the local and national levels.  This leads to internal "penalizing" of Arabs by fellow Arabs, who want to normalize with Israelis.

Secondly, many of the Arabs fear that by getting jobs, they will lose many of their welfare benefits.

Thirdly, many East Jerusalem Arabs work, but "under the table", so they don't declare their jobs to the tax authorities.
