Seeking to encourage employment among minorities in the Negev, the government on Wednesday approved a plan under which Negev business owners will have operating costs subsidized by the government if they employ Beduins and haredim living in the region. The plan, drawn up Deputy Premier Shimon Peres, who is also director of development for the Negev and the Galil, and Minister of Labor, Trade and Industry, Eli Yishai, calls for the government to provide yearly subsidies of up to NIS 3,000 for businesses in the Negev's service and tourism sectors for costs of employee salaries, granted the business employs at least four such workers.
