We all work to provide for our families, live in dignity and accomplish our dreams. When we don’t receive our wages and our labor rights are abused, this takes food from our table, impacts our children and dims opportunities for the future.

Unfortunately, those whose labor rights are most infringed upon are those who build our homes and cities, pick our vegetables, clean our houses and take care of our parents and grandparents.

KLO staff, along with our volunteers, work every day to protect worker’s rights. In the year 2018 alone, we were able to return 33 million NIS in illegally withheld income and benefits to thousands of workers. Over the years, we have spearheaded dozens of initiatives that provided protection for all workers in Israel, such as abolishing regulations that encourage legally binding workers to their employers; fighting against discriminatory labor practices for hourly wage employees; and improving safety regulations in the construction sector.

Workers are not commodities, their physical and emotional well-being matter, and every worker deserves appropriate recognition and compensation for their work. Moreover, improving the status of all workers in Israel is essential in protecting society as a whole: when entire groups of workers are systematically exploited, this opens the door for the broader erosion of rights and no worker is protected.

Each donation, small or large, will be matched and will help us continue our efforts. We have 36 hours!!
