כ״ה בשבט ה׳תש״פ
- A person who hired two workers but only has enough money to pay one of them — if one of them is an ’ani (a poor person), he takes precedence over the other worker, whether the other worker is well-off or an evyon (a destitute person). [The difference between an ’ani and an evyon is that an evyon is someone who has already become accustomed to asking for alms and is not embarrassed to do so; an ’ani is embarrassed to ask, which is why he comes first.]
If one worker is well-off and the other an evyon, the evyon comes first.
I. If both are poor or both evyonim, both are equal, even if one of them is a relative of the employer.
