Thousands of people marched in Tel Aviv Thursday evening to mark International Workers Day.

Carrying red flags and banners from numerous left wing parties, the demonstrators marched from Habima Square to Meir Park shouting slogans against "shilton hahon," or "the money regime" in English.

Hadash MK Dov Henin, who was among the demonstrators, carried a sign calling on the government to raise the minimum wage to NIS 30 per hour.
