Unemployment in Gaza highest in the world
The economic situation in Gaza is hard as the unemployment rate is the highest in the world. In a report, UNRWA said finding a job in Gaza is “not that easy work” due to the high unemployment rate.
According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS), unemployment rates in Gaza have reached 41.2 per cent among males and 62.6 per cent among females.
80 per cent of Gaza residents depend on humanitarian assistance from charities and aid organizations. The World Bank has warned that Gaza’s economy is on the “verge of collapse”.
