Brick-making factories closing one after the other

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi.
In an interview with the ILNA labor reporter, Abbass Salari, the Pakdasht workers representative said: “The brick-making factories in the townships of Pakdasht and Varameen are closing one after the other and more than 10,000 workers in these units have lost their jobs since last year. Out of 150 factories only 5% remain active; others have gone bankrupt due to stagnancy in construction in big cities such as Tehran.”
