Italian Firms Study Israel As Vacation Place for Their Employees

The heads of four major industrial enterprises in Italy arrived here today to explore the possibilities of planning Israeli vacation for employees of their firms. At the same time, 80 Italian workers arrived here from Jordan, entering via the Mandelbaum Gate, visiting Israel for a week’s stay.

Workers in Italy are, increasingly, receiving paid holidays as a form of untaxed, indirect wage increases, thus encouraging many Italian workers to travel abroad.
