Yishai: It's state's responsibility to compensate nurses

Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Thursday praised the agreement reached between the Treasury and nurses overnight, saying that it is the state's responsibility to know how to appropriately reward its employees.
"The reality in which nurses, who work day and night, did not receive the appropriate compensation, at the same time as the Treasury knew to go above and beyond for other organizations and employees that are less essential - did not make sense," Yishai said.
