Hourly Wage of Soft War Soldiers: 7000 Toman
A soft war soldier is some one who is working for regime in Internet, mostly at social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. Their job is to spread propaganda or to attack activists psychologically by insulating them. Their activity has began officially two years ago, as Sepah (Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution) realized the importance of Internet for the democracy movement in Iran and decided to fight it.
Now, a clergy friendfeed user said that they earn 7000 Toman ( 4.4 $) an hour. It is a good payment in Iran, specially if you know that the quality of their job is very low (I am not talking about the Iranian Cyber Police or the Iranian Cyber Army)
I ask myself how much a payment of a soft war soldier in a foreign country is.
