MK: Bread Price Hike to Hurt the Weakest


MK Uri Ariel (National Union) expressed dismay Monday at the government’s plan to increase the price of price-controlled bread. “This is an unprecedented blow to the weakest members of Israeli society, who not only can’t finish the month, but can’t even start it,” he said.

“Instead of cutting back from those who don’t have, we need to raise the money from tycoons, and not forgive them millions of shekels that they owe the country,” he argued.
