Ben-Ari, Eldad: Solve Nurses’ Strike by Taxing Arabs


The solution to the nurses strike is to enforce tax payment in the Arab sector, MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Aryeh Eldad of Otzmat Yisrael said Tuesday. “The time has come for the Israeli government to use its authority… Only equal enforcement of tax law in the Arab sector will allow us to raise salaries and improve conditions not only for nurses, but for other public sector workers.”

If current financial trends continue, the government will need to cut 15 billion shekels from its budget in early 2013, they noted.
