Families join expelled workers of Mahshahr Petrochemic on protest
The Petrochemical Company situated in Bandar-e Mahshahr, the capital of Mahshahr County in Khuzestan Province, is transferring the company to a private sector.
This move has put hundreds of workers out of jobs and those who remain will be put in the same spot very soon. Protesters gathered at the petrochemical company with their families in Mahshahr (special zone) to protest the recent decision taken to pass control of the industry to a private owner and want the growing unemployment of its workers to stop.
Workers of Mahshahr factory have been on other protests during past months. http://en.irane-ma.com/2018/01/26/workers-of-tondgoyan-petrochemical-company-in-mahshahr-iran-go-on-hunger-strike/
