Basra MP Oday Awad asserted that there are 3,000 foreign workers in oil companies operating in the province's oil fields, most of whom are unlicensed and did not obtain residency documents.

One of the main reasons behind the ongoing Basra protests is the high unemployment rate.

The Justice and Development Organization of the Middle East and North Africa expected earlier in December the outbreak of a mass popular uprising in various Iraqi provinces against price hikes, the deteriorating economic situation of the middle class, rising poverty and the high unemployment rate among Iraqi youth.
