Many years ago I volunteered on a kibbutz. Before leaving the country I 'worked' on a couple of moshavim as well. I recall being told by one moshavim that when we volunteer workers went home they'd have to bring back the real Arabs to do the work (to whom they would had to pay more). so we were depriving low paid workers of an income to save employers money. I assume there are fewer volunteers these days. Replaced by Thais and others no doubt. While I mainly enjoyed my time on kibbutz and moshav and didn't mind the low pay because it was an 'experience', I am appalled that so many Israelis, let alone illegal immigrant workers, are treated so badly in a wealthy country. Just because it happens in other countries as well is no excuse.
