    These strikes called by the union only hurts the weakest people in Israel. Those who rely on public transportation ,Naamat day care centers,Kupat Holims,local authorities and of course other government services. The rich dont care they can see private MDS,drive their fancy cars,they have Nannies ! The Airport strike hurts our economy in a time when we need every tourist dollar,and we need to export Israeli goods to bring back money into our economy! The contract workers new what they were in for when they took their jobs, why should we the working poor suffer? Who will get my meds for me with closure of Clalit,how will I get to work without a train? Stop hurting the poor ! Strike against the Gov in the knesset, dont give them services, dont clean their offices,bathrooms , close their cafeteria, daycare,,, leave us alone
