Jelodarzadeh also noted the widening social gap in the country and asserted, “At least 20 people come to me every day, asking for jobs while most of them are skilled and have university education.”
She also revealed that Iranian workers earn only 700,000 toumans per month, while their monthly expenditure exceeds several million toumans.
