- Blaming others to prevent the spread of the protests by nurses, Khamenei brazenly said today: “The tariff law was drafted 14 years ago, but its bylaws were not done until the end of the previous government. Last year, I also emphasized that those who should have done it did not do it!! … They should not consider the nurses as a seasonal worker!” The nurses’ protests have been spreading lately over unpaid overtime wages and the refusal to hire tens of thousands of them while the country needs nurses and medical staff. As a result of the dire living condition, the number of nurses wanting to migrate to other countries has grown by 100-fold lately.
