  • Thousands of Iran Energy Workers to be Sacked, Replaced
After taking to the streets in protest of pay and working conditions, thousands in Iran’s petrochemical sector will be sacked and replaced, according to the CEO of the Pars Special Economic Energy Zone. The decision comes after employees in the Bushehr province, the site of Iran’s South Pars gas field, demanded salary increases and improved benefits. Previous labor protests in Iran have also highlighted dissatisfaction with low wages and high living costs, made worse by the sanctions.
