The representative of the workers in the Supreme Labor Council said: the skyrocketing price of housing and, as a result, the heavy rent practically swallows more than half of the workers’ salaries. The government should think about the living conditions and housing of the workers.
According to Tejarat News, Mohammad Reza Tajik; The representative of the workers in the Supreme Labor Council, pointing out that in the last meeting of the Supreme Labor Council, we submitted a request to hold a meeting in order to reduce the purchasing power of workers, said: The Minister of Labor promised that a meeting would be held for this purpose. According to the law, the meeting should be held next week. But they have not yet given notice to hold a meeting.
Pointing out that our request was to review the issue of livelihood, he added: In recent years, there has been a lot of pressure on the workers in the field of housing.
Workers’ housing is the main problem of the labor society
The workers’ representative in the Supreme Labor Council stated: Housing for workers is one of the unsolvable problems of the labor society. Unfortunately, different governments have failed in their housing plans.
Tajik said: With the existing economic and living conditions of households, people cannot reach their salaries to the end of the month and are helpless in meeting the needs of their families, and thus many even have problems in meeting the rent of their houses. This process is a problem that does not need to be researched and all young families are involved in it, and if the father’s house does not help them, the problem will increase. This means that in the not too distant future, we will face not only the problem of owning a house, but also the problem of renting a house, the process of which has started and requires the government to pay more attention.
Rent consumes half of workers’ salaries
He stated: The skyrocketing price of housing and, as a result, the heavy rent practically consumes more than half of the workers’ salaries. Therefore, the government should think about the living conditions and housing of the workers.
