This month, the implementation of the Deposit Law, which constitutes an
additional blow to the asylum seekers from Sudan and Eritrea, began. The
law obligates employers to set aside 20 percent of the workers' wages
to a deposit, and they will receive their money back only if they leave
the country. On June, a demonstration was held in Habima Square in Tel
Aviv, protesting against the aggressive law. The protest was attended by
members of the Israeli asylum seeker community, and employers, mainly
from the restaurant industry, where many asylum seekers work.
