Israeli interns go against global norms

The Finance Ministry has agreed to substantially ease the workload on medical interns. This move would be eminently sensible if applied to any other profession, but interns worldwide are stress-tested during their internship. They are forced to take night shifts and work on weekends not for the sake of sadism, but to prepare them for the stress of real-life practice.

The FM agreed to pay each of the interns a $17,000 bonus. This is odd: people study to become doctors to make high salaries. Why should society subsidize those who will soon be wealthy?
