A group of unemployed holders of PhD degrees organized a sit-in in front of the Prime Ministry's building on Monday, June 10m 2019, demanding the application of the criteria for accreditation.

During the sit-in, protesters said that the criteria for accreditation are just words on paper.

They also called for reducing the retirement age for university professors, in addition to canceling the contracts of expatriates holders of PhD degrees, as they said that Jordanian holders of PhD degrees must be given the priority to be employed.

They pointed out that about 400 holders of PhD degrees are currently unemployed.
