Haaretz employees have voted on Wednesday to hold a one-day strike to protest the potential firing of around 80 of the paper's 400 employees at a meeting inside the newspaper's headquarters.

The action was passed with 125 employees voting for, and 68 against the strike.

One top Haaretz columnist remarked that although the strike is justified, it will cause damage to the workers the day after.
