All 1,500 workers at the Sadra Shipbuilding Company (Iran Marine Industrial Company) in Bushehr Province have been laid off.

ILNA reported earlier that 800 employees had been laid off, and now the remaining 700 workers have also lost their jobs.

The Bushehr House of Workers had already reported that the workers had not been paid for four months. The report adds that almost all of the shipbuilding company’s manufacturing activities have now been stopped.

The international sanctions on Iran have created widespread economic problems that have strained many industrial sectors.
