      Wolfson Doctors Stage March

      Doctors at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, south of Tel Aviv, staged a march to protest the impasse in collective-bargaining negotiations between the Israel Medical Federation and the government.

      Senior doctors and interns took part in the march. Some held signs relfecting their 26-hour shifts or 23-shekel ($6.75) hourly salary. Others read, "There's nobody to care for your father, " and "there's no epidural for your delivery."
