Ethiopians in the Work Force
The Manufacturers Association of Israel reports that it has recently completed training for 200 discharged Ethiopian IDF soldiers for industry and the business sectors. The training course was part of a special program to help the absorption of Ethiopian immigrants that began in November 1997. Over the past year, some 280 Ethiopian immigrants have found employment with over 20 firms. Today, more than 3,000 Ethiopians are employed in industry, mainly in production.
