Hundreds of social workers held a demonstration late Sunday morning near the Hadera police station by Route 4, on the eighth day of their strike.

The social workers are demanding better wages and working conditions. Talks held between representatives of the Histadrut and the Union of Social Workers with the Finance Ministry have yet to bear results.

Efrat Stretiner, a social worker for Hadera's welfare department, said that heavy traffic was caused by drivers who slowed down to honk or yell their support for the strike, although the demonstrators stood at the side of the road, bearing signs with slogans such as “we are not social slaves,” “justice, not charity.”
