Hundreds of Jordanians set up a protest camp in a main square in the capital on Thursday to press demands for the ouster of the prime minister and for wider public freedoms.
Taxi driver Haitham Yassin, 29, said he joined the protest because "I want the king to know that I became a taxi driver because I couldn't find a job as an electronic engineer."
"My degree went to waste," he said. "Still, I can barely make ends meet now. I have three children, and I can't meet all their needs because prices are constantly increasing, while my salary remains the same."
