Employment Offices Closed Monday Due to Sanctions

Employees at the government Department of Employment announced their intention to start sanctions Monday; offices will be closed to the public.

The employees are protesting the intention of the Ministries of Finance and Economy to hand over those who receive funds that guarantee at least a partial income to the private sector, thus abandoning some of Israel's most vulnerable population.

Tomorrow (Monday) the subject is to be discussed in hearing before the Knesset Labor and Social Affairs Committee, headed by Haim Katz.
