The “salary subsidy scheme” generated 6,752 jobs for first-time workers in the last fiscal year (March 2019-20).
The Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare implemented this incentive plan in eight Iranian provinces, namely Ilam, Kurdestan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari, South Khorasan, Kermanshah, Lorestan, Sistan-Baluchestan and Kohgilouyeh-Boyerahmad, during the year ending March 19, 2020, based on which the ministry pledged to pay 30% of the minimum wage to first-time employees who recently graduated from universities for the first 12 months to their employers. 
Each employer or entrepreneur of the private or cooperative sector, particularly those of knowledge-based enterprises and startups, and businesses that received a green badge from the Iranian Department of Environment or accolades from national festivals of entrepreneurship or Resistance Economy Command Headquarters, could apply for this scheme for 50% of their insured workforce. 
The scheme requires employees to be between 20-30 years of age and without prior insurance coverage for three months or more. However, the age requirement does not apply to jobless female breadwinners.
