Lapid: Raising Knesset Members' salaries – 'not appropriate'
Finance Minister Yair Lapid called to postpone the raise in Knesset Members' salaries. "It is not appropriate for elected officials to be given a pay raise while the middle class struggles to make ends meet," said Lapid.

 

At a Yesh Atid part meeting Lapid added: "I hope that this initiative will be supported by all Knesset factions, after my previous proposal to cut 10% of MKs' wages fell through in the Arrangements Law." (Moran Azulay)
