Mining and the "global slowdown"

"According to our numbers, 286 workers have been retrenched at Bwana Mkubwa since there has been no production, Kansanshi wants to send home 50 workers and the story is generally the same at all mines..."

National Union of Miners and Allied Workers (NUMAW) President, Mr Mundia commenting earlier this week on what appears to be a gathering storm over mining jobs. A thread on this now appears in order to track how this plays out, and in particular how government responds. I warned here, on how not to respond.
