Working class still the biggest loser: iLIVE
As the Marikana tragedy keeps doing the rounds in the media and the public, it becomes more and more clear that the working class remains the biggest loser.
Workers generally get paltry salaries and miners, specifically, are exposed to serious health hazards.
Trade unions like AMCU exploit that situation and present themselves as messiahs who can get workers a 300% salary increase. Political opportunists like Julius Malema use the situation to score points.
The workers are the big losers.
The next step is to build unity among the workers.
