Iran: 75 % of Stone Manufacturing Units Closed, Making 22,000 Jobless

NCRI – Due to regime’s economic policies, more than 75 percent of stone manufacturing units in Tehran have been closed, making 22,000 workers lose their jobs, according to reports.

“Nearly 22,000 workers in this sector have currently lost their jobs”, says a stone manufacturer, “and nearly 75 percent of stone manufacturing units have been closed.”

“We are currently experiencing one of the worst sales periods”, he added, “The recession in housing sector over the past few years has significantly hit stone manufacturers, forcing a lot of them to shut down their business.”

He then pointed to other manufacturers who are still operating, saying “the remaining manufacturers are working with less than 30 percent of their capacity, only for their units to remain open, while having to pay heavy insurance costs and taxes every day.”
