Miner's strike exposes the cruelty of Capitalism

20 May 2014, 07:22
Let's face it and stop being distracted. Currently mine owners claim miners earn around R9000 already. Now simple maths tells all the miners ask is ONLY R3 500 extra minimum each. So these guys rather loose billions because they refuse to give each miner who's life is on the line everyday they go down only R3 500??? R12 500 looks very much but let's put perspective to this matter. Miners demand R3 500 only. Not R12 500. It's not like they weren't paid before and have to foot full R12 500. Now capitalist go eat shit. It's R12 500 or go down yourselves. Done!

This adamant refusal to pay only the R3500 I illustrated above. Tells us one thing. That the claimed R9000 is a lie. And that the R4500 the miners always claimed to be earning is the truth. Because logic tells you. It's not feasible to jump from R4500 to R12 500. But as I illustrated, again it sounds absurd that mine owner would risk loosing billions over a difference of R3 500 when they don't go down themselves to fetch the gold but only sit in board meetings with suits and ties. Clearly. Someone's lies exposes themselves.

This miner's strike is classic testimony and indictment to the cruelty and heartless of the capitalists system.


It is all good to make Motsepes billionaires just talking in board meeting and have so called shares in that mine. Nothing more. And he's a billionaire, and can buy all he wants even clubs. But miners whose life is in danger daily under the ground their families risking loosing a father and breadwinner every hour he's underground have it hard properly supporting the very same family that puts his life on the line for their survival.
