It charges customers less for black cleaners and more for white cleaners,

and says Europeans are “better workers”, particularly eastern European

“An Israeli cleaning company charges customers less for black cleaners and more for white cleaners”

posted this Feb. 8, 2016

The company advertised its rates in a leaflet handed out in the major northern city of Tel Aviv, Israeli newspaper Haaretz flier.

It charges customers 49 shekels an hour ($12.60) for an African cleaner, 52 shekels ($13.40) for an Eastern European cleaner and 69 shekels ($17.70) for an Eastern European cleaner with Israeli citizenship.

The flier also characterizes Arabs as a security threat, instead offering cleaners of different races and ethnicities.

“Don’t want to hire an Arab for security reasons?” reads the leaflet. “Tired of being legal employers and getting sued by any passing worker? There’s a solution.”

When the spokesperson listed on the flier for the unnamed company was contacted by the Israeli website Mako, she said charging different rates based on race and ethnicity is not illegal, and said European cleaners cost more because they are “better workers,” BBC reported.

Israeli journalist and blogger Tal Schneider posted a photo of the flier to Facebook.

“Outspoken racism is seeping into Israeli society. Pricing employees according to race,” she wrote. “Admit that you haven’t thought of that yet. Israel 2016.”

 ‘Men still run the world – and it’s not going that well’

Where are all the women leaders? According to the latest data from UN Women, only 22% of all national parliamentarians are female. (That’s a huge number in modern States)

Only 11 women serve as head of state, and 10 serve as head of government. (Only Merkel has power in her position)

To all the people who still think that “women have it all”!

Away from the political world, the numbers are just as bad – or even worse.

Although women account for almost half of the college-educated workforce in the US, they hold only 19% of board seats, and are only 4.6% of CEOs.”

(I posit that the educated married women have far more power to lead their family and husband than any political position)

In the US, women make up almost half of the college-educated workforce, but hold only 19% of board seats.

Sheryl Sandberg – Facebook’s COO and a rare example of a woman leader in the male-dominated world of technology – thinks it’s time that changed. “Men still run the world – and I’m not sure it’s going that well,” she told participants at a session on the future of work in Davos. And until we rectify that, everyone will suffer: “It means we’re not using the full talent of the population.”
