Looking Forward

Tax policies, for example, can help make local labor more attractive to Israeli employers. Immigration policy can be rationalized, for instance along the lines suggested by a recent paper from the Metzilah Center. Government and private initiatives can see to it that migrant workers are treated with humanity.

Integrating justice and solidarity with the conditions of contemporary economic life and the needs of a democratic Jewish state is a daunting challenge, but no more so than many others that Israel has successfully confronted and overcome.
