In exchange for this pride, Palestinian society faces a problem formed by young people's reluctance to enroll in universities and enter the labor market within Palestine, prompting it to appeal to the Palestinian government and civil society institutions to address this problem before it worsens establishing ways to open a labor market for young people and give work chances to encourage them to enroll in colleges, and then the Palestinian labor market and freedom from the new adage "Employment takes precedence over education."
