In a shocking admission on September 11, 2019, Ali Khoda’i, a member of the regime’s Supreme Council on Labor told Tasnim news agency, affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards’ terrorist Qods Force, “3.5 million workers work in underground workshops. Their statistics are not recorded anywhere. These workshops are unofficial and unmarked. Tailors on Jomhouri Street have no worker identification cards… Workers in unregistered workshops are among the forgotten. There are plenty of temporary contracts in these workshops… Workers who deal with many labor contractors associated with the government, public and non-governmental entities are among those who sign temporary contracts with the contractors. If they protest, they will be immediately fired.” He also said that the minimum wage for workers “provides only for 35 percent of their expenses.”
