The Arab Spring has shaken the Arab world, but many are still waiting for jobs.
The unemployment rate in the region remains stubbornly high, and the jobless rate in Israel is higher than in any other Arab country.
But what if a new generation of Arab workers can find a job after the upheavals?
That is what Elanor Gebhard, the director of the Elanah-based Institute for Labor Economics and Sociology, has been trying to figure out.
Gebhert is an Israeli-born economist who moved to Los Angeles in 2000 and became a social entrepreneur.
She has been working in the field of labor economics since then, and she said she has not seen a single Arab person with a PhD in the area.
“There are only people who have been studying the Arab workforce for 20 years,” she said.
“So it is impossible to find a new worker with the skills needed for the next wave of the Arab workers.”
She added that there are currently no jobs for Arabs in the industry.
In fact, she said, there is a shortage of labor.
“In the last few years there has been a lot of focus on the Arabs as the most unemployed in the Arab community,” she explained.
“They are the only ones that have a lot more to lose than the rest of the population.”
One way to make up for this problem is to help Arab workers find jobs, she added.
“The Arab labor market is still struggling to adapt to the economic and social changes.
The government should take the lead and create a new labor market,” she stressed.
In order to create new jobs in the labor market, Gebhards group started an internship program in Los Angles with the goal of connecting Arab workers with companies in the city.
She said the program is aimed at helping Arabs gain experience in the local labor market.
According to Gebhart, this program is one of the best ways to help the Arab labor force in the Los Angeles area.
She noted that the program also aims to build an Arab-led network to encourage other Arab-Americans to start their own businesses.
She also noted that her group aims to create a network of Arab entrepreneurs, which can be very valuable for the Arab-American community.
The program is also being implemented in Israel, where there is also a large shortage of Arab-owned companies, and Gebhardt hopes to see the initiative expand to other Arab countries as well.
“This is the best way to increase the numbers of jobs for the Arabs in Israel,” she added, noting that she is optimistic that the new internship program can help make up some of the gap in the job market.
In addition to the internship program, Gethard has started a mentorship program in order to help young Arab-Israeli professionals find jobs.
“We are trying to find ways for the young people to get some experience in this industry,” she stated.
“If we are able to get them to go back to their studies and get a diploma in the fields of economics, business administration, marketing, or even management, they will be able to find jobs that match their qualifications.”
In the meantime, the Arab population in Los Angelas remains under-represented in the Israeli economy.
Gethart said that in order for the new Arab-Israel partnership to continue to grow, more Arab-Jewish businesses need to open up.
“I would like to see an Arab community that has been part of the economic development for years and years, like the one in the United States, become part of that economy and become a significant part of it,” she concluded.
“It is important to continue supporting businesses that are Arab-based and that are open to the Israeli community.”
*Israel’s Arab population is in a dire state.
The Arab-Palestinian conflict is making things worse *The Arab population of Israel is in dire state, according to a new study published by the Jerusalem Post.
The study, entitled Arab-Arab Economic Trends in Israel: An Assessment, analyzed the economic, social, and political situation in the country’s Arab community.
According a statement by the Institute for Employment Research, the report finds that the Arab Israeli population is still living under the shadow of the conflict in the Middle East.
According the study, the current unemployment rate of 3.6 percent in Israel ranks it 15th among Arab countries.
This means that almost 20 percent of the country is unemployed.
This unemployment rate is a staggering statistic considering that it is much lower than in other countries in the Western world, including the United Kingdom and France.
The report also noted the fact that there is no clear understanding about what exactly the Arab unemployment rate means and what it could mean for the future of the region.
“Most Arabs do not have a clear understanding of the current state of affairs and the political and economic situation in their community,” the report stated.
The authors of the study pointed out that the unemployment rate for the first time in recent memory was recorded in the fall
