Abstract: This paper discusses the daily wages of employees in the public and private sectors in Palestine. Based on the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) labour force survey, the author used a paired samples t-test to examine the difference in wages among the public sector, private sector, and Israel and the settlements between 2000 and 2015. The results show that the maximum wages are among the workers who work in Israel and the settlements. The wages in the public sector have become slightly higher than the wages in the private sector since 2005. The daily wages of wage employees in Israel and the settlements are significantly different from the public and private sectors. The employees’ daily wages in public and private sectors are strongly correlated, but there is no significant difference between the two sectors in the West Bank. Regarding Gaza strip, the correlation is moderate and there is a significant difference between the two sectors.
