A retired manager ejected by the workers!
Greetings to the guys in agriculture! Today they showed us how to deal with [managers] who have returned to work. Today, after the strike, they decided in front of the Governor’s Office and went to Hatami’s office and respectfully, without any disrespect, expelled Hatami from the office. Friends, let us unite, without any disrespect, eject the rest of the returnee [managers] from the company and get rid of these newcomers of Asadbegi.*
