Mansoor Osanloo, an activist demanding better wages for bus drivers, was arrested today on his way to the Shiroodi fitness center. He was arrrested on the Haft Tir square Metro stop. According to Gooya news, the bystanders tried to stop the 15 officials that were arresting Osanloo.

A letter was submitted to the Iranian government with signatories from the following unions in Iran:

mechanics
sewing workers
shoe-manufacturing workers
artists
bus drivers
and cultural laborers

in the letter to Mohammad Jahromi, the workers demanded to have appropriate wages that would allow a basic living for a worker as well as the government recognizing the unions in Iran.

It is the opinion of this blogger that it seems the dicontent in Iran is increasing and the government is failing to address its shortcommings. As a result, the problems are piling up, instead of being resolved.
