      Eini Slams Govt over Channel 10 Debt

      Histadrut labor union head Ofer Eini criticized the government Wednesday over its decision not to allow Channel 10 a three-year delay on payment of a debt. “The Channel 10 issue could be solved easily,” Eini told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal). “[Channel 10] employs hundreds of people directly, and thousands indirectly.”

      “What is it they want? To delay a payment that’s like a tax for three years, to pay interest on it and give guarantees. I don’t understand the government,” he said.
