Maya obviously comes from a family who are poor and so they need all the money they can get to make ends meet. It is also a fact about Israel that since day 1 Israelis have worked harder and earned less than their western counterparts. Its not the fault of the right, left or any specific government its just always been that way and there doesn't seem to be anyway of breaking that cycle. It is noticed much more these days because unlike in the past where we were all poor but equal some people have managed to make it to the very top and so we look at them and out of envy they are looked on as the evil tycoons who make their fortunes by oppressing the rest of us ( politics of envy ) So now you look and you see the poor who have always been there and the evil tycoons and it looks like a modern problem created by a specific government which its not. In 64 years neither the most far left or most far right have ever found the solution to change it. Things like house prices the government can't solve that problem because the free market sets property prices not government and certainly Tel Aviv will never be affrdable, its Israel's equivilent of London or New York, politicians can promise to make it affordable but they cant deliver. Give Daphne Leef herself responsibility for making housing in Tel Aviv afordable and she would fail miserably. This is the reality of the real world.
