The strike in the Gold Fields of South Africa

The strike

The strike

South Africa is one of the world's biggest producers of precious metals. It holds 80% of the world's known platinum reserves and is the fourth largest gold exporter.

However, not long ago a big number of workers employed by the Gold Fields were on strike. The reason why they were on strike is because of the low pay and bad work conditions.

Although the owner of the gold fields is very rich, the workers live a very poor life, and some of them even can't have enough foods. At the same time, the safety of workers also can't be guaranteed.

After the failed negotiation with the leader of the gold fields, they had to be on strike. During the strike, there were some fights between police and workers, and sadly some people died.

This event not only affected the people in South Africa, but also had a great effect on the world economy.
