Pulling the Wool over Our Eyes: Poverty Also Increases among the Employed / “Economic Night”, Nana10 22/1/2017 (Hebrew)

There is a suggested solution: more Employment Grants. Dr. Miri Endweld: If the State gives a work grant to workers who earn less than 2,100 shekels – say, from the first shekel as they do in the US – we will have reduced the level of poverty among working families at a relatively low cost.

Prepared for the Annual Conference at the Van Leer Institute.
