Haredim in Israeli high tech

B”H
Despite all kinds of statements that Israel’s haredi population doesn’t work – actually plenty of Haredim do work. And not only since the former government coalition cut down financial support for haredi families. As a matter of fact, a lot of Haredim have been working for many years. Especially in the high tech field.
Just look around in various high tech companies in Jerusalem and you will see a lot of Haredim working there. There are even startup companies founded by American Haredim and the staff is haredi only.

Over and over again, Israeli Haredim complain that they are being bullied when working for companies with a secular workforce. On the other hand, there are high tech companies who prefer to employ Haredim only, as they are seen as more reliable than their secular counterparts.
