The Cabinet today in the framework of actions to encourage participation in the labor force and the rate of employment, decided that enforcement regarding working conditions will concentrate on violations carried out by those who employ workers at low wages, including by service contractors and those who employ foreign workers.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that, "This is a very important decision.  The major problem is infringing on the labor rights of weaker groups, including those earning minimum wage.  Since this is the main problem, this is where we will act and this is where we will bring about solution."

Prime Minister Netanyahu called on workers who feel that their rights have been violated to contact the special Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry switchboard that deals with the issue.
