Iran, September 16, 2020—A group of retirees protested in front of the Pension Center Organization’s building in the city of Kermanshah, west of Iran, on Tuesday, September 15. They were seen chanting: “Retirees are living in poor conditions” and “We are empty-handed, but officials get high wages.”

 

 

 

 

On Monday, September 14, bakers in the city of Yazd, central Iran, rallied in front of the city governor's office protesting the unrealistic price of bread based on inflation.

It is worth noting that due to the price of bread bakery workers’ wages do not meet the today’s inflation and their wages are lower than other workers.
