Following strike, Knesset C’tee to discuss contract workers

The Knesset Economics Committee will hold an emergency discussion on contract workers Tuesday, following Monday morning’s four-hour general strike.
According to committee chairman Carmel Shama (Likud), “the purpose is to examine the economic-financial significance of hiring contract workers, as opposed to the alternative of direct employment.”
“The committee will discuss if there really is a difference that influences the economy [when contract workers are hired], and if that difference is worth the negative price that stains all of us,” Shama added.
The committee will also attempt to find solutions for the current conflict between the Histadrut and the government.
