Yesterday I posed a question and am gathering responses. You can see the issue in this post: Posing a problem and Searching for Solutions.
Here is the first response to come in:
Someone on my FB page says: "Get in touch with a lawyer. They have no right to do this"
My answer: Thank you for pointing that out. That is exactly what the bank said and why the bank will not provide a loan. However, it is also why I was not able to work in Misrad HaChinuch, the Ministry of Education as I had no solution to this 4 month no pay stipulation for new Olim and had no-one to assist me.
Do you have a solution to the problem?
BTW, if you can tell me that this is no longer happening I will be delighted to hear and to share the happy news.
In the meantime, I would like to know why the OT supervisors do not see the problem here. Why are the principles of the profession not being advocated for? What about ensuring that OTs are able to live the kind of quality lives we assist our clients to. OT is about promoting health and well being not creating causes for OTs to end up in a state of poverty, which refusing to pay can create.
