Ongoing Turkish currency plunge | Bakeries workers call for strike in Al-Bab city to raise wages

Aleppo province: With the ongoing plunge of the Turkish Lira that hit a record low against the US dollar and other currencies, living conditions of thousands of Syrians have been worsened in areas under the control of the Turkish forces and their proxy factions in “Olive Branch” and “Euphrates Shield” regions where the Turkish currency is dealt in.

In this context, workers in bakeries administered by local municipals called for a strike on Thursday to express their discontent over their worsening living conditions and the declining wages to 800 Turkish Liras. Such wages are not enough for buying the daily basic essentials.

On December 8, SOHR activists monitored that dozens of teachers staged a protest in front of the faculty of education in Al-Bab city, which is under the control of Turkish forces and National Army factions, east of Aleppo, to demand an increase in their monthly salaries and to express their anger at being insulted and accused of being agents for the Syrian regime by a member of local councils in Euphrates Shield region.
