Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 2 comments
Why is it that Israel finds it so difficult to find local people to fill these jobs? This doesn't seem to be a problem in many much wealthier Western countries. Are there really not enough unemployed Israelis, new immigrants and others available to work in these positions. Is it really so terrible being a pool attendant, bar tender, housekeeper or a cleaner in a 5-Star resort that there are no Israelis willing to do the job? If the government would insist that these people must be paid at least the minimum wage, I'm sure that many Israelis would be happy to fill these jobs.
