Fewer than 4% of workers in Iran enjoy job security, the employees’ representative in Supreme Labor Council said. 
“Lack of job security, livelihood security that is defined as adequate and sustainable access to income and resources to meet basic needs, and the right to join or form a union are three main concerns of workers today,” Ali Khodaei was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency. 
“As we speak, employees feel threatened, more than the previous generations, by lack of job security, such that the other two concerns appear to have been overshadowed by uncertainty about the future.”
Currently, more than 95% of workers in Iran work on temporary contracts that are renewed every one, three or six months.
