Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Friday said that the protest movements taking place all over the country are the result of the working middle class feeling that they are carrying the burden economically and not enjoying Israel's economic achievements themselves.

"The anger in the streets stems from the fact that there are those that can contribute but don't want to and the middle class carries on its back entire groups that don't participate in the workforce," Livni stated during a speech at conference at Kibbutz Yifat.

"There is growth which is not being translated into quality of life for Israeli citizens," the Kadima leader said.
