Miners vs. mine owners

· Web · 33 · 44

@pinkprius Did you have a look at the mines in Canada? It is quite a bloody history. In the North, we had mines run by companies that were autocratic. Lots of bloodshed as a result and once the mines were exhausted, the companies pull the plug and left the remaining worker high and dry with no pension or compensation. As a result, the Canadian government had to take over ownership because of threats to local population. The mines were left in shambles...

@pinkprius My good sir or madam, you wouldn't dare to imply that property ownership is somehow immoral, would you? Think of the plight of the venture capitalist!
