Jewish Technicians to Study Employment in Jerusalem Electric Works

Download PDF for this date

Jewish technicians have been invited by the Jerusalem Electric Corporation to examine the company’s attitude toward Jewish labor, according to a report current here.

It is believed that this will result in an early improvement of the situation and the employment of more Jewish workers in the project. The company was prompted to this action due to the protests and the decision of some Jewish organizations to boycott the corporation’s electric service unless Jews are employed.
