Humans of Kurdistan - South 60

“From 1977 to the 2000s, I worked at the Education Minsitry, located where Kaso Mall is now. I worked there for about 30 years, then I retired. I thought I could rest after retirement, but it didn’t turn out that way because my retirement pension is very little and we have not been paid for 17 months. Everyone knows how the salary situation is now, which is why it is important for people to work to be able to continue living, otherwise they can’t go on. I carry and transport things for people and shop-owners in the bazar. I am sitting here in front of this shop today, waiting for the owner to come back because they have things for me to transport with my cart.”
