Israel Parliament Passes Law Establishing Govt. Labor Exchanges

The law establishing Government-operated labor exchanges, replacing those presently operated by the trades unions, will enter into effect on April 1. The law was passed by the Israel Parliament this week.

Non-Governmental labor exchanges will continue to exist as the Government agencies will not deal with all types of jobs. But the non-governmental agencies will work only in those fields not covered by the official exchanges. Jobs requiring manual labor will be filled through the government facilities.
