- We,producers of social wealth,with our work and efforts in big and small factories,services and treatments in medical centers and hospitals,as a teacher in schools and universities,producing in energy , water ,telecommunications,gas and oil,petroleum,steel and car factory and centers not only,do not have any control on product distributions and manufacturing services,do not have the right to participate in managing the place or center we work in or to have any labor or employee independent organizations and councils but also,there's no right to have our own produce wealth and we are getting paid with minimum wage and salary which is not enough to live a normal life and is below the poverty line.
After thirty years of working,we are not able to have a proper place to live or pay our children education high costs or have a appropriate medical treatments or have fun.And worse than all of these with temporary or short terms contracts and giving all the power to greedy and exploitation contractors,there's no relation between us and our employers and no one is responding to our demands.We have to be worried all time even for this minimum and be waiting to see if they extend our contracts or not?and our living level can be compared to the slaves before human civilization.Even it's worse than that because those slaves had something to eat anyway,but when they do not need our workforce there's no food too.So to have these minimums at least and not being unemployed we can't speak out and have to self-censor ourselves.
All of us have the experience of bending over in front of our managers or employers in order to take something that actually is part of our right and it's became a believe from their side that they have to treat us this way and it's more than our right.In November 1978 during the revolution,if we, worker and employees of small and big factories,oil,energy,water
Now we produce all the values and wealth but benefits go straight to exploiter ,loculars and stray division who are our uneducated,oppressive managers and giving us orders.sometimes they close the factories and make us unemployed just to share the land or sell it and make more money.There is no salaried employer who can pay for her/his children education in a high level elementary or high school which costs at least 5 million tomans($5000)per year or even medical main costs.And it means that it will be much worse in the future because the education also will be provided to mullah and market traders and high level managers and pirates of wealth.Why should our country be in some special group's hands?Why more than %80 of social wealth should be available for %20 of people?Why %100 of political powers should be available to 200,000 mullah and market traders and their children and family members and relatives and the rest of population which is 50,000,000 people can not have any political powers?And at last have to choose between bad and worse?Do all these match to any natural, humanity, justice or God rules and laws?Except for the unfounded,justified laws by the supreme leader which restrict people.And by demanding smallest,basic rights,they use Police forces who are trained by these people's money and has the duty to make society safe and secure,against people and to reach their frowzy goals.
In current situation government dose not have legitimacy and is in the peak of political,economic crisis and is not able to directly repress people in factories,industrial centers,universities,...By
Organizing councils in work places and employees public state councils not only has to become a modern target of every employees but also these councils have to get their share of economical and political benefits.But they have to be aware of not focusing only on small benefits in work places because even though getting that benefit is so important but if we can not relate and join it to class interests of all salaried and workers,at the end we will lose it.It's so simple, just compare the workers and employees wages, salaries,permanent employment,insurance and right to participating to twenty or thirty years ago,it's so much worse than then.Because they were happy with those partial benefits and with a price shock and inflation or a change of laws in a Council of Ministers and Parliament meeting,they lost all their achievements and that was just because workers could not link their partial demands to their classified long-term interests.
So as long as we have time and government is busy with its social,political and economical crisis,we have to organize our councils.It's too simple.In each and every center or factory,representatives of different sections make their center council or organization.Alongside the work,we can work on improvements and reforms and it's not necessary for everything to be alright from the beginning.The most important thing is to have independent representatives council and then representatives have to be in touch with each other in different work places and industrial areas in cities and provinces and at last they can have their general councils for workers ,teachers ,nurses and etc.
Same as clergies,Friday Imams,managers,commanders and governors we have to have public and areal organizations.Only after having independent and public organizations all employees can ask for their rights in political ,management ,economic fields and when we are organized like this and government ignore us and do not give us our logical demands then we can go on general strike and that way show governmnet we are an important part of society.Then they do not have any other options rather than giving us an honorable life and also share wealth and benefits with people as much as their efforts.That is the time that we can have free,motivated and creative people and a country full of peace and freedom and at last we can have public participation in everything.
By creating independent councils in our workplaces and employees general organizations will take our share of social wealth,public participation and political power.
