According to a study by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, only about 20% of the Arab academics who majored in Science or Engineering are employed in the areas of their study. This is in spite of the law which prohibits discrimination in getting a job on the basis of ethnicity. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commissioner, attorney Ziona Koenig-Yair, added: “The study reinforces the feeling of the public, that there still is discrimination against the Arab population – a feeling we get also from employers and from employees.”
