Israel – Yeshiva Students to Earn NIS 15000 Salary as Construction Workers


    Israel – Minister of Housing and Construction Ariel Atias agreed on a new plan with senior executives of the Association of Contractors and Builders in Israel to employ haredi (ultra orthodox) yeshiva students in the construction industry, “Yediot Ahronot” reports. The yeshiva students would earn a monthly salary of NIS 15,000.

    The plan is meant to provide a partial solution to the shortage of manpower in the construction industry.

    Atias told Yediot Ahronot, “I envisage a response from hundreds of yeshiva students who will be able to support themselves with dignity. There are already ultra orthodox people working in industrialized building. We will approach mayors and mobilize the ultra orthodox to work.”

      • The workplace – Especially construction industry is rough place too, with any industrial type job, the surroundings are generally not “for a good Jewish boy.”
        Hopefully they will go in force together and make it a makom Torah as well.

    1. These figures don’t make sense. A proffesional computer programmer (with a degree) only makes 8,000-10,000 shekel a month. The average construction worker makes 5,420 shekel a month. Likewise to be an Egged Bus driver, one make 5,690 shekel per month. These facts are based on Israel’s average salary data. There must be something wrong with the numbers posted on VIN. Please update this with accurate information.

      • Computer programmers make more than 8-10k/month. Better programmers can earn 15K or more, in the best guys a lot more. But I am somewhat skeptical of the claim of 15/k per month, But maybe I am wrong about that. (For the record I am a computer programmer working in the greater Tel Aviv area)

    2. I don’t believe it. They are going to pay $4155 a month. Most people only make $1000 a month. I have children in Eretz Yisrael and one is getting “good pay” of
      $3200 a month after working there 12 years
