"The minimum wage in the economy must be raised to NIS 6000. We have no choice, the cost of living is rising. And as we have previously raised the minimum wage to NIS 5300, we, and the employers, will have to find the outline. We will also have to figure out an outline for raising the pension of the elderly - even at the expense The workers are serving so that the old-age pension will rise, "said former Histadrut chairman Arnon Bar David, during a meeting with the president of the Manufacturing Association and the president of the business organizations, Shraga Brosh at the annual industry conference in Tel Aviv.
Bar David added, "These days there are attempts by parties to incorporate the issue of raising the minimum wage within their basics. I think this issue should leave employers and employees to the point that politics will only do harm to the issue."More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS
