July's total was 8.1% below the worker demand figure for June this year when 22,054 requests for workers were submitted.




Worker demand fell 4 percent to 20,278 employer requests in July from 21,119 the same month last year, led by a 34.5% drop in the North and a 16.1% drop in the Northern Sharon and Valleys region, the Employment Service said Wednesday, noting that it was "apparently" a result of the war. In the Jerusalem area, worker demand rose 11.4% over last July, while employers submitted 9.8% more requests for workers in the South. Worker demand in the central Dan region fell 1.8%. July's total was 8.1% below the worker demand figure for June this year when 22,054 requests for workers were submitted.
