Former Gush Katif Arab Workers Sue Employers
(IsraelNN.com) A Channel One report shows that Gush Katif refugees are facing a new challenge. Former Arab workers are reportedly trying to sue their former Israeli employers for "wrongful dismissal" and other benefits. The SELA Administration reportedly told former Gush Katif residents, employers and businessmen: "It's your problem."
Yossi Schwartz, former owner of a clothing factory interviewed in the report, said that former workers' claims could be more than NIS 1 million in his case alone. In addition, more than 50 percent of former Gush Katif residents, including Mr. Schwartz, are still unemployed.
