There is no strike more justified than Monday's expected strike concerning the employment status of contract workers, Labor Party leader Shelly Yacimovich said Friday morning in an interview with Israel Radio.

According to Yacimovich, the issue of the contract workers is a moral one that is growing progressively more despicable. She added that the state is the primary criminal in this phenomenon; it is blind to the contract workers' existence, although they make up a third of it's employees.

Manufacturers Association President Shraga Brosh, told Israel Radio that he mostly agreed with Yacimovich. Brosh proposed a compromise that employees such as full-time cleaners, be absorbed in the workplace, while employees whose work requires expertise, such as retention and security sectors, continue to be employed by a contractor.
