Peretz slams gov't decision on minimum wage bill

MK Amir Peretz (Labor) attacked the Netanyahu's government's decision on Sunday to defer the reading of his proposed minimum wage bill, preventing it from going into effect in the next bi-annual budget.
Peretz declared that the decision to table the bill was a sign of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's callousness towards the disadvantaged groups in Israeli society.
"Every time that it is necessary to struggle with the disadvantaged segments of the population, Netanyahu finds the strength and ability to crush their hopes," Peretz said.
