Claims Women in Gov’t Jobs Create Palestine Unemployment

Download PDF for this date

Two thousand women, mostly Jewesses, are employed in the various government departments, the Christian-Arab paper, Falastin, complains in an article addressed to Dr. Drummond Shiels, British under-secretary of state for the Colonies, who is here for a ten-day visit. The Falastin claims that the women deprive men of jobs and consequently increase unemployment.

Dr. Shiels, who has recovered from his illness of last week, visited the Dead Sea works today. He has abandoned his proposed visit to Transjordania as he has only five days left.
