When the workers belonging to the middle and low economic class go home in Iran the majority of them cannot even get respite from a hard day’s work, with food in their belly since a majority of them (estimated 70%) are surviving under the poverty line.

Rahmatollah Poormoussa, who is the head of Iran’s state labor organization, says that, “Many workers cannot even afford the basic products they need for survival, and many of these items are now considered luxuries”. The economic crisis that Iran faces has drowned a majority of the population in poverty; even those with two jobs cannot stay afloat.
