Quote of the Day

I stand here as the representative of the Haredi community and beseech of you, the members of the Coalition, to integrate us into the workforce, support this important law!

  -- MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) upon proposing a law to expand fair representation (a form of affirmative action) of Haredim in the public workforce (this would apply to the public sector of government clerks, etc)

By the way, the law was voted down 52-21. Opposition Laws have only a very slight chance of passing in general and that is only when a lot of work is done to bring in support from across the aisles. In these days of contentious government with the two sides not willing to work with each other, such cooperation is getting very rare.

    If they wanted their people to work, they could, say, encourage them to get an education.
