    Yes, more Haredim work than this loud mouth pol imagines! Haredim, for their reasons, namely they are expected to serve in the Army before they are "allowed" to be gainfully employed, and many working poor that moonlght takng jobs after their regular jobs, often work "under the table". Otherwise they would have to declare the income, and more of it would to the tax man than thier pockets. That you don't see them "working" is because this cut of the population doesn't want you to know--it means they have to pay a steep fine for "not declaring". Yes, Virginia, the Haredi, like his working poor brother, is the shiputznik that works for cash, much of the time for less than what a licensed contractor would take. He's the Torah scholar that comes in to repair your computer, quickly, efficiently, and mums the word, and he might just not be a Torah scholar, but a student that "knows what he's doing" who is even Secular. Mickey Levy is a bigoted fool that doesn't like Haredim, and thinks he can divert the attention from his boss's plitot peh by using the religious thing to cover up for the other things he proposes that annoy us. So you don't like regious people and "normal" is wearing torn Levis and earring in your pupik, and eye lashes, going to raves, and being glues to "Da Voice" and a "A Star is Born". You wonder why he is so quiet about Danker and his shenanigans--is he jealous that he can't make deals with the bankers? I guess that is what is normal, for him, at least.
