Interior Minister Eli Yishai called contract work “humiliating, and must be removed from this world,” speaking in a Shas faction meeting on Monday.
He also announced that Shas would work to promote a bill by MK Avraham Michaeli (Shas) that would forbid government offices to hire contract workers. Shas sees Michaeli’s proposal as the beginning of a solution for this “disease,” the interior minister said.
According to Yishai, the contract work system combines a low salary with “a lack of red lines” as to the intensity of the work.
“Unfortunately, this all takes place under the government’s sponsorship,” he added.
