In a discussion held today, Monday, in the Knesset’s Finance Committee on the outline of assistance to El Al, which MK Keren Barak requested, cried the chairman of the El Al Workers’ Committee, Sharon Ben Yitzhak The cry of the workers who have been in the IDF for a year and many of them are already below the poverty line. “2000 employees have been in the know for over several months that they have been fired and cannot settle accounts for them and are being tortured. Thousands of our workers in the IDF over a year, hundreds of our workers are below the poverty line. Imagine for a moment over a year without working heavy debts children at home. Without an economic horizon, insane uncertainty that takes employees to terrible thoughts !!! ” Cried the son of Isaac.

“What are you waiting for? Someone take a can of oil and burn himself to make things move? What are you waiting for? Ask about being eliminated and we will all trust our foreign companies to keep us open to the world during an emergency or war. There are probably some in the room who think at the moment you are a private company, and I say tell this to mothers whose children were trapped at the beginning of the corona in points in the world without access, that no plane in the world was ready to take off, we and the Israeli flag flew 20 hours To bring the kids home !!

“Tell that to the defense minister that during a war air trains constantly fly to fill the warehouses. Tell this to the maintenance technicians who worked and prepared aircraft under the open sky without a protection room under attack time and time again. Tell our pilots who are flying in the sky full of enemy missiles while no company or pilot is willing to take a risk and get here !! Tell that to all our citizens and brothers in the aliyah operations that came in the dead of night from all kinds of deserts that saw our planes and crews coming. ”

“Elal is Israel and those who think differently and those who sit here today and think that it is possible to give up El Al endanger the security of the state and endanger the livelihoods of thousands of families and throw them into the cycle of poverty and unemployment !!!

The chairman of the El Al Workers’ Committee called on the committee members to take responsibility and approve the outline of aid to the company: “This is your responsibility to the thousands of families who are citizens of the state who pay taxes who serve in the army and bear the burden of the economy. This is your shift !!! Friends ask you on behalf of the thousands of families today to give an existential line and breathing air and help us end the nightmare we are in. ”

MK and member of the Finance Committee Keren Barak: “El Al is a strategic anchor of the State of Israel and we must maintain it, for over a year from the beginning of the corona we demand that the state take care of El Al financially, its customers, employees and suppliers, for the past few months I have been demanding discussions on the issue.

At a good time they reached an agreed outline between the Ministry of Finance and management, an outline that was supposed to be approved at the cabinet meeting yesterday, due to the cancellation of the meeting, it is of paramount importance The company the refunds they deserve and move forward. ”
