Workers in Iran

Workers across the world face austerity, poor wages and worse conditions, and workers in Iran have it very hard, BBC News has more:

“Iran’s labour union has been pressing for several years for the country’s labour law to be re-written.

In its current form, employers can fire workers on the spot so long as they provide them with a written notice.

Some 40% of the country’s manual workers are hired without contracts and are paid by the day.”
