The Labor Market in a Pluralistic Society
Author: Jimmy Weinblatt
August 31, 2000
Economics is one of the most important factors in a society built of diverse population groups. This chapter focuses on aspects of pluralism in Israeli society—nationality (Arabs and Jews), ethnicity (origin groups within Jewish society), and, to a lesser extent, gender and place of residence. We treat wage distribution and its long-term variance as givens and, in view of this approach, examine how the groups that make up Israeli society have performed, in relative and absolute terms, in the labor market.
