Receiving Wages for Work on Shabbat Many people legitimately work on Shabbat. Some are health-care providers in hospitals who correctly violate Shabbat to care for patients with life-threatening conditions. Others are staff or mashgichim in hotel restaurants who work on Shabbat without actually violating any specific halachot. Some are simple neighborhood babysitters who also work on Shabbat without committing any violations. Can any or all of these accept payment for their work? A link with sources has been sent to all participants. We will begin studying these sources in our next class.
