John P. Martin, OECD Director for Employment, Labor and Social Affairs, criticized the Israeli government’s socio-economic policy, especially as it pertains to Israeli Arabs. According to Martin, although Israel is the developed country with the highest poverty rate, it invests only 15.3% in social budgeting — some 5 percent less than the rest of the OECD countries. Martin indicates that most of the poverty is concentrated in the Arab and ultra-Orthodox sectors.
