Minimum Wage

Minimum Wage

Overview

AKA 30 Shekels Per Hour, the show is about three women from three remote corners of society who work in the same building as cleaning ladies, through a large manpower agency. When they’re fired, they decide to take their fate into their own hands, and offer their services as a team at a laughably cheap price to the media company whose offices they clean.

The three heroines come from three very different and very distant sectors of Israeli society, one is a downtrodden 40 year old from a remote town, one a new immigrant from the Ukraine who had left her daughter behind,  and the third an Arab young women, a collaborator who ran away from her family.

The series won the Israeli Academy Awards for Best Drama Series and Best Directing, 2012.
