(p.19) Chapter Two Some Historical Background
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter sketches out the history of the Israeli state and discusses some details about the labor market in the 1950s. It establishes that labor market conditions in the 1950s were such that there were plenty of white collar spaces over which new immigrants could compete. However, several dynamics made these positions hard to get anyway. These included the entry into the labor market of men who had been in school abroad and the little room to work in sales in Israel, relative to the number who had worked in sales abroad. This chapter also considers immigration, settlement, and the distribution of housing and other necessities.

Keywords:   1950s labor conditions, white collar spaces, Israel, settlement, resource distribution, sales
