Thousands of social workers, striking for three days, demonstrate today at the Ministry of Finance for better wages. Jerusalem, Israel. 08/03/2011.
Already in their third day of striking, thousands of social workers assembled from throughout the country to demand better wages. Symbolically, on this special 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, they are out to demand their worth, as 89% percent of social workers in Israel are women. So far negotiations between the social workers union and the Treasury have yielded no results.
