Disabled persons appealed to the high court with the requirement to equalize the size of the disability allowance with the minimum wage. The response of the Knesset to the claim stated that the plaintiffs must prove that it is impossible to exist on a disability allowance, which currently stands 2.342 shekels.
The answer provided by the court from the Knesset, stated that when discussing the level of life of people with disabilities must consider not only the size of the disability allowance, the whole range of government services this category of citizens, including health and social services, and other payments.
The legislators demanded that the plaintiffs provide evidence that the allowance and other payments from the state do not allow them to lead a decent life.
The website Nana10 reports that at the request of the Knesset consideration of the question was postponed.
