Mine Bosses exploiting the poor

30 May 2014, 20:45
It is common practice in South Africa that a voice of a poor person is never listened to. The poor are never protected.

The rich are extremely protected. Looking at recent events in South Africa, lets take a look at Oscar Pistorius case for example. So it means maybe everybody who has committed murder has some mental problems. Maybe we should revisit all the cases, more especially the cases whereby mental ill people are serving sentences. 

Let us ask a question to the Mine Bosses. You have gained by way of exploitation for years, don't you think it is about time you give up some of your luxuries, so that poor people can also better their lives?
Why is the Media not exposing these Mine bosses?

The biggest crime committed to humanity is exploitation. Maybe it is about time the Mine Bosses close down the mines and hand them over to new management who will be mandated to better the lives of the poor. 

SARS must also play a role. These Mine Companies declare to SARS annually. How much percentage is paid to labour? Is it not about time that there are laws in this country that will protect the interest of the poor.

Let me give another example, lets say there must be a certain percentage of profit that must be paid to labour. A mine company must take 50% profit and the other 50% must benefit the labour and poor people of south Africa.
