Simchon: 100,000 to Break Free of Poverty

Minister of Industry and Trade Shalom Simchon said Wednesday that he believes 100,000 families will break free of poverty due to increased enforcement of employment law, Reshet Bet reports. Enforcement will benefit those earning the lowest incomes, he said.

The law will provide for faster response to employee complaints, and will hit employers who violate employee rights with higher fines and will publicize their offenses.
