MK Kara to Seek Solution for Salina


Ayoub Kara, the Deputy Minister for Development of the Negev and the Galilee is expected to talk to the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Labor and to Bank Hapoalim, Monday, regarding solutions for the Salina plastic bag factory in Natzrat Ilit (Upper Nazareth), following management's weekend announcement that it could not afford to pay salaries and was closing the factory. The Likud Knesset member told Salina employees that the bank had been appointed as a receiver for the company.

Kara said the factory should not be closed because it hurts the workers and their families in particular, and development of the periphery in general. He added, "It's impossible to encourage young couples to settle in the Galilee when factories and sources of income are closing."
