Workers, Society Equal, Leader Says 2023

Saturday, thousands of workers, members of labor organizations, and Iranian Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare officials convened with Ayatollah Khamenei at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini Hussainiya.

In his remarks at the meeting, the Leader stated that the purpose of the annual meeting with workers is to emphasize their value in society, adding that work is equivalent to the life of a society because it fulfills all the needs and requirements of the people and the nation.

“Work is what sustains a society. Work is the foundation of human existence. Without labor, nothing exists. The food we consume, the clothing we don, and the life-sustaining facilities we utilize are all the results of labor. Who performs this task? Workers. So, what is a worker’s value? Equal to the value of a society’s existence is the value of a worker. “They are equivalent to the worth of human lives,” he said.

Ayatollah Khamenei believed it was essential to comprehend labor activity and workers in order to produce real and useful labor.

“The country’s and society’s vital need for work, a worker’s need for work in order to manage his/her life, a person’s spiritual need for work, and the completely tangible effect of work in eliminating and preventing all types of corruption, demonstrate the critical importance of planning, investing, and taking action to generate work and genuine employment.”

Ayatollah Khamenei further defined the 14,000 martyrs who belonged to the community of workers as 14,000 honor flags held by workers.

“The most significant indicator of the labor community’s allegiance to the system over the past few decades is their intelligent conduct. “(For instance), they thwarted the efforts of certain groups to cripple the establishment at the start of the Revolution by shuttering their workshops, and they also wisely resisted the widespread propaganda of foreign ill-wishers who sought to turn the working class against the government,” the Leader explained.

According to, he referred to the workers’ vigilance and resistance to foreign provocations as “the great jihad of the workers’ community.”

He stated, “By the grace of God, they will no longer be able to turn the workers’ community against the government.”
