    Last year, I had worked at Hilton in Eilat, and had my first contact with Oranim participants. The pressure that is on the Oranim participants, is far greater than for ordinary employees. They are provided with shared accommodation of 2 or more to a room. The salary is 900 shekels a MONTH, which is nothing more than pocket money. An average working day is approx10-12 hours per day irrespective of the amount of hours worked! A Sudani gets paid approx 6 times more per month, for doing the same job. If they get fired they lose their 3000 shekel deposit and get sent home, which in itself is a humiliation. In a sense they are entrapped to the job, making them feel like they are imprisoned to the job . As a US Citizen, I can see how someone would snap , when fired and losing Ulpan, other studies etc.
