I agree you can't create jobs out of thin air as Gideon would have us all believe. If they are going to increase pay then it will create more economic problems because companies will want to hire fewer people. When the pay checks increase from $2 a day - $2 an hour minimum wage its not going to do the economy any favors. Gideon is one of those good old fashioned socialists who believes in make the rich poorer so the underclass can move up to the status of just poor and the rich will be reduced to poor through very high taxation but at least we will all be equal .. everybody has a vote and everybody has the same standard of living. Democracy can give you political freedoms but it doesn't create jobs or make the population any richer. Israel has to many people and not enough skilled labour.
