96% of Iranian Workers Have Temporary Contracts

About 96% of workers in Iran have temporary contracts, the head of workers’ guilds association said. Stressing that lack of job security and low wages are the two main challenges facing workers, Gholamreza Abbasi said, “The minimum wage of 9.3 million rials ($232.5) is not enough to live on for 10 days. This is while our studies last year showed a monthly income of 33 million rials ($825) should have been set as the living wage for a family of four,” Mehr News Agency reported. A living wage is necessary for a worker to meet his family’s basic needs. These needs include shelter and other essentials such as clothing and food.
