Jordan, UN help thousands of Syrian refugees find work

Jordanian government has made it easier and cheaper for Syrian refugees to get work permits, as a result more than 95,000 Syrian refugees, mostly men, are now working in factories, farms, construction sites and stores.

    Jordan is facing an economic crisis, compounded by the influx of Syrian refugees.

    But the government is now joining forces with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to find them work.

    Al Jazeera's Natasha Ghoneim reports from Sahab, Jordan, on how this could be a blueprint for other countries in the region, such as Lebanon.
