Histadrut Labor Federation Chairman Ofer Eini warned on Wednesday that the Histradrut would join the housing struggle unless Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invites Eini and other relevant officials to a meeting to determine solutions for the troubles of Israel’s lower and middle classes.

In a press conference, Eini said he would take all possible measures available to the Histradrut unless Netanyahu arranges the meeting by Saturday night.

Eini opened the press conference by saying that housing prices were just part of the overall social problem facing Israel today, and just one cause of the erosion of the middle class and weaker sectors of society.
