MK Dov Henin: Why Is Government Still Importing Foreign Workers?


Tomorrow (Wednesday) the proposal  by MK Dov Henin (Hadash) to establish a committee of inquiry regarding the policy of importing foreign workers while prohibiting the employment of asylum seekers will come to a vote in the Knesset.

"Why does the government continue to import foreign workers? Wouldn't it be better to use asylum seekers; not preferable to use Israelis? Instead of bringing in tens of thousands of foreign workers, wouldn't it be better to give the work to asylum seekers, in conjunction to their applications to obtain refugee status.  They could receive work permits for different areas, which would also distribute them throughout the area more logically and naturally.
