MKs express support for embattled 'Ma'ariv' paper

September 20, 2012 20:02

Three Knesset members – Eitan Cabel (Labor), Zevulun Orlev (Habayit Hayehudi) and Dov Henin (Hadash) – participated in Thursday's protests in front of Ma'ariv's offices, while others spoke out in support of the embattled newspaper.

"This battle is bigger than just the firing of 2,000 Ma'ariv employees," Cabel explained. "This is a fight for organized labor in Israel. The fact that the owners of Ma'ariv are trying to only pay the fired workers 70 percent of the damages they deserve according to law is a declaration of war on unions."
