The Israeli labor force has about three and a half million workers. The median salary (meaning the monthly pay half of workers earn more of, and half less) for 2012 was 5,343 NIS per month, illustrating the large pay gaps in the Israeli labor market. 25% of workers are employed via outsourcing, and are exposed to exploitation and abuse of their social rights. This is the main reason for the recently identified phenomenon of working people living below the poverty line. Kav LaOved serves around 6,000 Israeli workers each year via internet and face to face consultations and legal assistance.
