Histadrut Plans to Shift Unemployed Workers to Agriculture

Download PDF for this date

The Histadrut, Israel’s labor federation, decided today to divert unemployed persons in Israel from urban areas to agricultural development projects. One plan calls for encouragement of unemployed Israelis to find employment in irrigation projects now under way in the Negev.

(The London Daily Express reported today in a dispatch from Tel Aviv that the Israel Government has discharged 1,001 employees “for reasons of economy.”)
