Study finds huge wage gap between Ashkenazim, Mizrahim
The Times of Israel:
A new study has found a huge and abiding income gap between Jewish Israelis of Ashkenazi, or European, origins and Mizrahim, or Jews hailing from the Muslim world.
According to the latest Adva Center annual report dealing with “equality and social justice in Israel,” which was released early Wednesday, the average monthly income of urban Ashkenazi salaried workers in 2012 was 42 percent higher than the average wage among all salaried workers, while Mizrahi urban salaried workers’ wages were just 9% above the average.
