Demonstrating precisely why they get paid half as much as their defense and intelligence counterparts, Israeli foreign ministry workers are protesting their low wages by dressing down in the work place.
Calling it “a strike,” the diplomatic employees have refused to wear a suit and tie to work. However, they still show up to work and perform work duties, only in jeans and flip-flops.*
The dispute has lasted six months now, but we only just noticed because Israel rarely engages in diplomacy nowadays.
In some regions, flip-flops are called sandals, tongs, slippers or Buffett low-kickers.
