Alarming numbers in Iran on the verge of Int’l Labor Day

Alarming numbers in Iran on the verge of Int’l Labor Day

30 April 2018-- The international community is beginning to welcome Labor Day as an opportunity to improve workers’ conditions across the globe. In Iran, however, the story is far different.
Statistics tell one side of the story:
  • Iran, 2nd in natural gas and 4th in crude oil reserves, ranks 19th amongst 197 countries in regards to unemployment.
  • Iran has the highest number of unemployed college graduates.
  • Up to 15,000 children are in the streets and or in various jobs, 16% of whom are with an average age of 11 years.
  • Iran is among the 35 bottom countries in regards to workers’ paychecks.
  • Iran has one of the cheapest labor forces in the world.
  • Iran ranks 72nd among Middle East / North Africa countries in regards to creating jobs.
  • Iran, however, has a very active market of selling kidneys, bone marrow, eyeballs and even newborns… all caused by skyrocketing poverty.
  • Iran has the highest administrative corruption in the world.
  • Iran ranks third in suicide among women, with poverty being a major factor.
  • Iran ranks second only to China in executions.
  • Iran sits at the very bottom of the world’s humane freedom chart.
  • Iran’s prison population has increased by 333% in the past 30 years (ranking 8th in the world)
  • 6,000 to 8,000 women are homeless due to violence, drug addiction and lacking any caretakers.
  • Up to 35 percent of the population is living under the poverty line. Iran’s own semi-official Tasnim news agency, affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards Quds Force, is known to have reported over 50 million of the country’s 80 million populace lives in poverty.
  • Iran has the highest number of road accidents in the world.
  • 30 percent of Iran’s youth suffer from mental illnesses.

These are only a small percentage of the resulting catastrophe when a country is ruled by the mullahs’ regime for four decades.
When a government renders such an outcome through its political, social, construction and cultural “management,” only God knows what its very reactionary perspective delivers vis-à-vis women – which of course belongs to the Middle Ages.
The main pressure of all those unbelievable numbers will be on the women of each and every family. More and more women in Iran are entering the workforce in order to help their families make ends meet.
“Some female workers are seen in sewing workshops working for 14 hours straight… Half of the workers in brick factories are women and they are in very harsh conditions,” according to Iran’s semi-official ILNA news agency.
Other Iranian and non-Iranian news agencies and outlets report further atrocities:
- “Throughout Iran’s history, female workers have been forced to endure very harsh conditions.”
- Iran’s House of Labor Secretary-General Alireza Mahjoub said, “Unemployment among women workers has doubled in the past two years.”
- Shahrvand daily wrote: “80 percent of Iran’s uninsured workers are women,” adding “Female college graduates are receiving below minimum wage standards and having no insurance pensions.”
“There are women earning only 1.5 million rials a month ($35).”
Despite all this, the Iranian woman’s 40-year struggle against the mullahs’ regime has never stopped. Women are specifically seen leading the charge in the recent uproar of protests across the country. This trend will most definitely increase and provide even more troubles for the ruling mullahs.
