Trade unions terrorize Israel

Israeli band of trade unions Histadrut, a Soviet-era monster, again paralyzed Israeli economy over the wage demands. If government employees are unhappy with their salaries, they might quit and look for better-paid jobs, as all other workers do. Histadrut, however, blackmails the entire country. Israeli companies lose up to a billion shekels daily due to the strike, and common Israelis experience untold inconvenience. Ben Gurion airport will close down on Thursday due to the strike, and most government offices remain closed. Histadrut exempted the Defense Ministry from the strike.
Though monopolies are illegal and monopolistic extortion is a criminal offense, Knesset allows Histadrut to extort monopolistic profits ultimately at the consumers’ expense.
