    You chep so much about Haredim, and forget that some of them actually "do work", many of them, in fact, but the way Ben-Gurion fixed it they couldn't work "legally" unless they were inducted into the Army, an idea, in fact, they are warming up to slowly but surely. Until they they work "for cash", something you don't see, or maybe you don't wnat to see. As to "employablilty", you'd be surprised how many Haredim do work, but you don't see them either. The stones in Beit Shemesh, dude, that's a story for that town, too complicated to explain in a talkback, but its "pure Beit Shemesh". The rest of the Haredi public is "normal", though you imagine that pierced noses, and lips, designer jeans with signs that they were "scuffed up" are acceptable and Haredi standards of modesy are beyond the pale. If i read your talkback correctly, you are bigot, and imagine that if every was like you the world would honkey dorey. No it wouldn't, it would cast out anyone that didn't think, or dess, or act like you.
