Israel has some "Basic Laws" that are considered to be a somewhat equivalent to a constitution.
In 1994 the Knesset enacted the Freedom of Occupation Basic Law, which states:
Every Israel national or resident has the right to engage in any occupation, profession or trade.1
My question is: what does this law try to prevent/solve? Was there an issue of people not being allowed to work in certain professions2? And if there was an issue, why was a higher ranking law (a Basic Law) needed?
1Now, there are some limitations that I guess allow for things like conscription and preventing people who are not licenced doctor to engage as doctors.
2Again, without considering sensible limitations like requiring proper formation for the job.
