Abstract

The article examines a proposed model for assessing Sub Minimum Wage (SMW) for persons with disabilities in Israel, with reference to the committee of experts of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor. The article uses a "quasi benchmarking approach", comparing SMW the year mentioned in the abstract is not a note or reference, it is the year that the committee described in the article, was held. It can be however, removed from the abstract as long as it is mentioned in the text assessment practices in Israel, the United States and Australia. The paper discusses the merit of using such an approach and whether the proposed model, which has been accepted by the government, reflects a significant change in SMW assessment practices in Israel, and concludes that the model introduces an incremental rather than a meaningful change.
