Palestinian workers face mounting hardships

The occupation of Palestinian territories by Israel has totally compromised the economic and social life for millions of Palestinians. To survive, many Palestinians have to work in Israeli factories, whether in occupied Palestinian areas or in Israel itself. Every day, workers face intimidation, humiliation and harassment by Israeli soldiers as well as having to cope with restrictive laws that make many workers ‘illegal’ in their own lands. Nevertheless, Palestinian workers are still taking actions and are trying to create stronger fighting organisations.
