Haifa faces a second day of strikes on Thursday, garbage is uncollected and only children with special needs are able to attend kindergartens. 


The reason for the strike is Haifa mayor Einat Kalisch-Rotem asked to review the hiring of 24 garbage collector who were temporary workers up util this point. 
Reports claim that on Got Levin street, where Kalisch-Rotem lives, garbage workers purposely left garbage as a sort of personal statement against the mayor.
