Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini called Defense Minister Ehud Barak a dope in an interview with Channel 2 news on Wednesday.
"There's something about Barak - there's no mistake he doesn't make," Eini said. "You're a minister, you have to be a role model. Why would you bring a Filipino (foreign worker)?"
Eini added: "Bring an Israeli worker, be an example. What can I tell you, you have to be a dope to do that. Really."
