The new social-welfare system being proposed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government will offer a lot of incentives to the poor, but not to the middle class, according to economists.
Netanyahu’s new government wants to create a new welfare system that is more flexible and more responsive to individual needs, as well as to social and economic development needs, according a report by the Knesset committee on social welfare.
The new system will aim to improve the financial situation of the needy and improve their quality of life by offering them greater flexibility, the report said.
But there will be some limitations.
It is unlikely that a large part of the money allocated to the needy will be used for such things as food stamps, Medicaid or other social assistance.
The plan also has to take into account the needs of the poor.
“I don’t think there is enough money to be used in the area of health and nutrition,” Yossi Weiss, director of the Institute of Economic Affairs and a member of the Kishon Begin panel on social issues, told Haaretz.
Netah Shachar, who heads the think tank in the coalition, said the social welfare program will provide social welfare assistance to a certain class of people.
“There is a certain number of people who will receive social welfare benefits, and this class of poor will get more than the rest,” he said.
“The middle class will receive less than the poor.”
While there is no precise timetable for the implementation of the new system, some experts believe it will be implemented in the next few years.
“It’s quite clear that this is a project that is being designed to create incentives to make people work and be active,” said Shacharcz.
According to the plan, the state will pay people to provide them with a monthly stipend of 10,000 shekels ($1,600), or $2 per day.
The government will also subsidize the cost of food, clothing, transportation, and other basic necessities, and will give people financial incentives to work.
The government will set up a “living wage” that is higher than the minimum wage, and there will also be an “incentive program” for employers to offer more generous working conditions.
It will also provide the poor with free health care, education and other social services.
The Knessets report also said the government will pay for the provision of social housing, including for those who are in poverty, and would also build more affordable housing.
The budget for the new welfare program, which will run from 2018 to 2023, is expected to be at least $4 billion, according the report.
However, it is expected that there will not be enough money available to provide all the services, according Weiss.
The plan also calls for the creation of “social entrepreneurship” centers in order to offer a new avenue of social entrepreneurship.
The centers will be set up by the government to promote entrepreneurship and give free training and training materials to the disadvantaged, the Kivunim website said.
It is unclear how these centers would work, as they would be operated by private companies, not by the state.
Weiss said that the idea behind such centers is that they will be an alternative to the “social-wasteful” state, as the new social system will provide the government with a new way to provide social assistance to the working poor.
He said that such centers will also allow the government and private companies to share profits.
Weiss added that the new government’s plan has been very clear that it does not want to be a “social welfare state,” as he described it.
“This is not a state, but a new social security system, with a focus on the needs and the needs only of the working class,” he told Haifa.
“We don’t want to replace a welfare state with social assistance, but to create it,” he added.
