Herzog: The Israeli middle class is disappearing

Former social affairs and welfare minister Isaac Herzog (Labor) commented on the gradual degeneration of the middle class into poverty, saying that the prime minister does not provide answers to his citizens, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.
Herzog added that the recent price hikes in bread have hurt the middle class, diminishing it and make it difficult for them to save money.
MK David Azoulay (Shas) commented that if the government does not address the issue, the public will surely take to the streets.
