Thais working communal Israeli farms

April 11, 2010

Everything from cucumbers peas and peppers are grown in the moshav greenhouses, but the sound of Thai being spoken is unlikely, according to a reporter from the BBC news.

According to Roni Keidar, who runs a seed production business, almost all of their workers are Thai. Many of the workers make almost double what they could in a year in Thailand.

"Netiv Haasara is right on the border with Gaza. Standing by the greenhouses you can literally touch the huge concrete wall that separates Israel from the Palestinian territory," said Jon Donnison, the reporter for BBC news.

According to the article, the Israeli government says there are around 28,000 Thais working legally in Israel.
