Forty percent of the public blamed the government for economic instability, according to a Knesset Channel Dahaf poll released Wednesday.

Another 33% of those polled cited the Euro crisis as the root cause of economic instability, while 16% blamed workplaces that fire workers because they are "only concerned with their own interests."

A final 6% placed the blame on the social justice protests, though 69% of those polled believed that the protests should be renewed.
