The Rehabilitation Works Fund has been withholding the wages of 2,500 handicapped people for the past few weeks. The fund operates as a public trust sponsored by the Ministry of Social Affairs and provides services to thousands of handicapped people, and operates diagnostic and rehabilitation centers. It has encountered a severe budget deficit of 20 million Shekels, and has therefore withheld the wages of the 600 councilors who work with the handicapped.
