Big Tech Accused Of Using Minerals Mined By Child Labor
You may have felt guilty that your iPhone is made by wage slaves in China. Now you have a new reason to feel guilty! It turns out that the minerals used to make electronics are mined by children in the Democratic Republic of Congo in some of the worst conditions imaginable. Ana Kasparian, Kim Horcher (Nerd Alert), and Margaret Howell (The LipTV) hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Will the knowledge that these minerals are mined by children make you think twice about buying electronics?Let us know in the comments below.

Apple, Samsung, Microsoft and other phone manufacturers were accused by Amnesty International of using rare minerals mined by child laborers in their smartphones. Amnesty's investigation found that in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), there are areas where children work in artisanal mines to feed the thriving market for cobalt, an ingredient in the lithium-ion batteries of modern smartphones. The DRC produces about 55% of the world's cobalt, the Global Mining Institute reports. While many people may associate "artisanal" with craft beer snobs and woodworking classes, in the case of Congolese mining, it means digging by hand using rudimentary tools in sparsely regulated, impromptu mines.” ********** The Young Turks January 20, 2016 Hour 2 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTpcK80irdQh-lZaQSvh-y-E__PVMDI5C Track Palin ARRESTED For Brutal Domestic Assault https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLzlKbgNDw8&index=1&list=PLTpcK80irdQh-lZaQSvh-y-E__PVMDI5C R.

Recruiters Vs Ministry of Labour - #NoFeesforWork
Email [email protected] and tweet him at @Yasir_Naqvi and demand that he overhaul Ontario's recruiter legislation. More info: http://www.migrantworkersalliance.org/category/no-fees-for-work/ Tens of thousands of migrant workers are being forced to pay up to two years of their salary to work in Canada. Their documents are being seized when they arrive here, and they are often finding themselves if worse jobs than they were promised. With entire families back home in debt to pay these fees, many workers are reluctant to complain about bad bosses. This must stop.

e10 Fuel Problems (It's not clean or green - or a good deal for you.) | Auto Expert John Cadogan
Time for the ethanol chat. I’m pretty sure there’s gunna be a fatwah. (Said the actress to the bishop...) My comments in this report relate to Australian ethanol - which is mainly produced from wheat. In the US they use corn, and in South America they use sugar cane. And the energy economics vary as a result. At the risk of being totally parochial, we don’t have a famine problem in Australia. We have some poverty, but there’s enough arable land. Here in ‘Straya, farmers are going to grow what they can grow on their land, and they’re going to sell it to the highest bidder. If part of that market is for ethanol production - fine by me. At an ethanol factory, the wheat gets separated into its two constituents - starch and gluten. They ferment the starch to produce the ethanol, and they sell the gluten into the food industry. The first big problem is: ethanol’s not green. All that marketing bullshit - clean, green leaves coming out of the petrol bowser? It’s A-grade bullshit. We produce ethanol here, using coal and diesel. It’s environmentally disgraceful. Here in Shitsville, there’s effectively an ethanol monopoly - it’s all made by Manildra. The company operates one large ethanol plant in Bomaderry on the South Coast. Coal and wheat roll in at one end, and ethanol pours out the other. Manildra is privately owned by a rich dude named Dick Honan through his personal company Honan Holdings. He’s a prolific political donor - kicking the tin to the tune of $179,000 in the 2014-15 financial year. According to the ABC’s Four Corners, Manildra made $4.3 million in donations over the past two decades - straight in the favour bank. Personal opinion. On fundamentals, Manildra seems like a pretty shitty business. I don’t know why they bother. Total income on sales for 2013-14 was a staggering $1.2 billion for Honan Holdings, according to Fairfax, but the taxable income was just $35 million - that’s a margin of less than three per cent. That’s terribly thin. This means the income tax payable was just $6.6 million. On $1.2 billion in sales. To put this in perspective, if your taxable income here in Shitsville is $100,000 per year for the total sale of your labour to your employer, and you paid tax on that at the same rate as Manildra, the impost of income tax to you would be $500. Annually. Mr Honan appears to be rather the regular at meetings with the big end of town. According to Fairfax Media he met with then NSW Premier Mike Baird and other cabinet ministers on 20 occasions in the lead-up to the government compelling small filling station operators to sell e10 for the first time. Here’s what the NSW Treasury said about that in 2012: “Beyond Manildra it is difficult to identify a net benefit for any other segment of society.” The ACCC said in 2013 that e10 had (quote) “reduced consumer choice” and resulted in (quote) “significantly higher prices”. Even the Greens weren’t convinced. The late Greens MP John Kaye said: “There's no evidence that requiring motorists to use ethanol-blended fuels has any net greenhouse gas gain or much in the way of air quality improvement.” It kinda sucks when you can’t sell an allegedly sustainable fuel to the Greens. Yet, none of this convinced the Premier. In February this year the NSW Planning Assessment Commission approved the reopening of one of the state’s shittiest coal mines so that the dodgy output can be trucked to - you guessed it - Manildra’s ethanol plant in Bomaderry. The Planning Assessment Commission said in 2014 that operating the mine would be: “Incompatible with the significant conservation of the site” The allegedly independent agency rejected that previous non-Manildra mining proposal saying open cut mining there posed: “Unacceptable risks and impacts, and only limited short-term benefits.” I wonder what changed. Because soon, it seems, 20 filthy, stinking coal trucks every single day will stuff themselves full of low quality shit coal, and head across the the Blue Mountains to the Manildra ethanol plant - which has breached its EPA licence more than 2000 times, according to the Financial Review - to keep those boilers ticking over and that clean, green ethanol flowing. According to Fairfax Media, Manildra has development applications in play, which will see the plant expand from 126 million litres to 300 million annually. Do you suppose there’s really any doubt that this plan will get the green light? When it does, I can guarantee you that it will be a great deal - for Manildra.

Illegal gold mines operating in Ivory Coast
(3 Jul 2017) LEADIN Illegal gold mining in Ivory Coast is still widespread in the country's north despite government efforts to control it. Local officials complain too many men and women are joining the continuing gold rush and leaving farms without enough labour. STORYLINE At an illegal mine in Tongon in the far north of Ivory Coast, around fifty kilometres from the border with Burkina Faso, miners have dug a 20 metre shaft into a layer of gold bearing rock. Rocks are hauled to the surface before being pounded into a powder. It's very a labour intensive and sometimes dangerous process. Illegal mining has been blamed for uncontrolled migration between countries in the region, unchecked pollution and for fuelling violence. Miners move around, following the latest gossip of where gold is to be found. Miner Hamed Ouedraogo has come from northern neighbour Burkina Faso: "Often when we are moving about we hear of new mines that have been started and that are people are going there, so we head there too." Although operating without permits, miners have machinery on hand to help them and receive a small salary from the illegal mine's owners, often businessmen working with the help of corrupt local officials. It is something authorities have been trying to stamp out as they encourage international investors into the sector. George Gueu Gombadji, the Prefect of Boundiali region says that it means that agriculture is also suffering as there are fewer men to work the land. "This (illegal gold mining) is causing a major loss off of the nation's riches. It has reached such a scale that the supply of agricultural labourers is drying up as they all go mining instead," he says. Illegal mining took off during the years prior to Ivory Coast's 2011 civil war, with rebels occupying much of the north. While the money doesn't flow into the state's coffers, run-off from the illegal mining pollutes water courses. Ouedraogo says the gold will be sold off wherever it can attract the highest prices: "In Burkina Faso the price is higher, a gramme (of gold) can go up to 30,000 West African francs (51 US dollars)." He says in Ivory Coast the going rate is 12,500 francs (21 US dollars) per gramme. Not far away are the offices of Randgold Resources, a NASDAQ and London stock exchange listed gold mining company. They operate legally, holding an official permit to mine in the area. They operate on an entirely different scale to the illegal miners - the Tongon mine, operated in partnership with the state, comprises two massive open cast mines. According to Randgold's own figures, last year they extracted 260,556 ounces of gold at this mine in Ivory Coast, that is over 7 metric tonnes, generating over 121 (m) million US dollars in profit. Bodiel N'diaye, the company's country director recently gathered journalists to explain why he is unhappy with the impact of the illegal mining. "These people come and set up in areas where they do not have the right to operate. Take our concessions for example, where we have a government licence (to mine). When we come to start working, we can't because these people are occupying the site illegally, they have no authorisation from the supervising ministry. They don't follow the laws," he says. Government efforts to crackdown on the illegal mining have done little to stop the practice. The illegal miners simply move on or across borders briefly before returning.

Remote village hopes small coal mines not closed as part of govt plans to create reserve
Residents of Tausa, a remote village in central Colombia, fear that authorities will close the small coal mines that have sustained them and their families for as long as anyone can remember. Miners in "La Flauta" said on Wednesday that their small-scale "artisan" mine will close if authorities declare the area a nature reserve in which mining is prohibited and there will be no hope for their future. Government officials have been saying that for the time being there are no plans to close Tausa's mines, and despite their worries, workers continue with the manual labour that has been passed down through generations. From early in the morning, miners at "La Flauta" hop into railway wagons and travel through a maze of tunnels before reaching the seam, where they begin to extract coal. Then they chip, drill and pick for hours the mine's interior walls in search for the mineral. The effort though, seems that it's not paying off at the moment. "Right now mining has become difficult because there are no exports. There are no carbon sales. Carbon is very cheap and there are 40 families, 40 people working and depending from this mine and we all have wives and children," said Sebastian Echeverria, 45, who has been the administrator of the mine for 11 years. Miners say they earn about 600,000 pesos (318 US dollars) every two weeks. "If there was a way to advance with my family, support my family with other (types of) jobs, then I would do it," said Armando Pinzon, a Tausa resident who has been working in the mines for eight years. The plan to declare the area a nature reserve is being reviewed by the Environment Ministry, and most likely will not go into effect in the coming future. But for Tausa's residents, that doesn't calm their fears of being left unemployed. The Juan Manuel Santos administration cut its coal production goal for 2013 to 94 (m) million tonnes from 98 (m) million due to strikes afflicting the sector this year. In 2012 the sector produced more than 89.2 (m) million tonnes.

Webinar: Learning from Physiological Demands Research at the International Mine Rescue Competition
In 2016, Sudbury hosted the International Mine Rescue Competition – this once-in-a-lifetime event provided an opportunity to study Mine Rescue teams globally. Twenty-seven teams competed in a real underground mining accident simulation. We collected continuous, real-time physiological data including body temperature in roughly 60% of the participants throughout the 2 hour simulation. This research will directly respond to recommendations from the Ministry of Labour’s ‘Mining Health and Safety Prevention Review’: the need to understand and develop fitness requirements for Canadian Mine Rescue workers and develop novel methods to manage and prevent heat stress incidents during a mine rescue.
Restructuring Ontario's OHS system
Elizabeth Mills, the president and CEO of Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS), one of four recently amalgamated health and safety associations resulting from the restructuring of Ontario's prevention system, talked with Canadian HR Reporter TV about the changes. (At the time of the interview, WSPS was going by the interim name of Safe Workplace Promotion Services Ontario.) Ontario's prevention system is made up of the Ministry of Labour, Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), Workers Health and Safety Centre, Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers and 12 health and safety associations. Health and Safety Ontario is the result of an effort to reorganize the independent efforts of the 12 associations into four streamlined organizations. They are: Infrastructure Health & Safety Association: Based in Mississauga, Ont., it covers construction, electrical and utilities, transportation, aggregates, natural gas and ready-mix concrete. Public Services Health & Safety Association: Based in Toronto, it covers hospitals, nursing and retirement homes, residential and community care, universities and colleges, school boards, libraries and museums, municipalities, provincial government and agencies, police, fire, paramedics and First Nations. Workplace Safety North: Based in North Bay, Ont., it covers mining, mine rescue, smelters and refineries, forestry, pulp and paper, printing and converting and northern Ontario business.

'Stop stealing the miners' pension' Labour stalwart Dennis Skinner yells in PMQs
/form Labour stalwart Dennis Skinner today compared the government to two of the country's most notorious businessmen as he called on the Tories to "stop stealing the miners' pension."  Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions, he asked: "Is the minister aware that already his government have taken more than three and a half billion pounds out of the miners' pension.  He slammed the Tories saying: "They're like Philip Green and Maxwell put together. Stop stealing the miners' pension."  Former owner of BHS Sir Philip Green sold the company for a £1 in 2015, a year before the retailer collapsed leading to a loss of 11,000.  The retailer had a pension deficit of up to £571m when it failed and hard-working staff are still facing uncertainty about whether they will receive the money they are owed.  Robert Maxwell, the former owner of the Daily Mirror, famously robbed the newspaper's pensions to shore up its ailing share price.  He later mysteriously disappeared while alone on his yacht near Tenerife.  While they were working miners contributed 5.25 per cent of their pay towards pensions.  In 1996 it was estimated the funds would generate a £2billion surplus over the next 25 years.  But they are doing much better than expected and the Treasury got a total of £10billion to spend on what it liked.  This huge sum has arisen from surpluses, money held as an investment reserve and a £1.1billion, seven-year contributions holiday dating back to British Coal’s involvement.  MPs want the money to be shared out more fairly.  Nick Smith MP for Blaenau Gwent in South Wales also raised the issue.  He told the Commons: "Members of my family were either killed or badly injured working in the coal mines of the South Wales valleys.  "We owe all of our miners a debt of gratitude, yet in recent years the Treasury has raked in billions from their pension scheme.  "So can the Chancellor meet with me, retired miners and coalfield community MPs to fix this injustice."  Mr Lidington replied: "We certainly recognise the hard work and the incredible risks that miners took in the honorable member's constituency and many others.  "The important thing about the miners pension scheme is that it should pay out all the promised benefits in full and my understanding is that the scheme is funded to do just that and no former miner is going to miss out."  As MPs prepared to file out of the Commons at the end of the question session, Mr Skinner could be heard yelling "you're stealing them."

Weekly Review No.  65 (1942)
New Zealand National Film Unit Presents Weekly Review No. 65 (1942) Hubert Thomas "Tim" Armstrong was a New Zealand politician of the Labour Party who died on November 8 1942. Armstrong was born in Bulls to Irish immigrants Mary Newcombe and her husband, Martin Armstrong. His father was a blacksmith by trade, but worked as a labourer in New Zealand. His mother was a nurse and washerwoman. Tim Armstrong left school when he was eleven and worked in flax milling and in the bush. In 1895, he started in the mines at Waihi. He married Alice Fox on 7 March 1900 at Paeroa. Armstrong was elected to the Christchurch City Council from 1919 to 1925, and again from 1927 to 1929. He was selected as the Labour Party candidate for Christchurch North in the 1919 general election. As a unionist who had spent a year in Lyttelton gaol for sedition, he had no chance of being elected in this well off electorate, and the incumbent, Leonard Isitt, was successful. He represented the Christchurch seat of Christchurch East from the 1922 general election to 1942, when he died. He held ministerial positions in the First Labour Government, including Minister of Health, although he was replaced by Arnold Nordmeyer in 1941 because of problems negotiating with doctors over Labour's health proposals. Other ministerial positions include Minister of Labour and Minister of Immigration. On 8 November 1942 Tim Armstrong died in Wellington from heart disease, accentuated by bronchial complaints deriving from his days in the mines. He was eulogised as one who had devoted his life to the cause of the working class, and as a parliamentarian of integrity, who enjoyed firm friendships on all sides. A devout Catholic, he was given a state funeral in Wellington, and a requiem mass in Christchurch presided over by his old parish priest from Waihi, Bishop Matthew Brodie. He was buried in Christchurch, and many thousands of people lined the streets for the funeral procession. Flowers and wreaths, filling four trucks, were sent from all over the country in tribute. Armstrong was survived by his wife, Alice, four sons and a daughter. One son, Arthur Ernest (Tommy), followed his father as a Christchurch city councillor and a member of Parliament.

Stages of Labor Nursing OB for Nursing Students | Stages of Labour NCLEX Explained Video Lecture
Stages of labor nursing OB review for nursing students who are studying for the NCLEX exam and maternity nursing lecture exams. This lecture explains the various stages of labour. There are four stages of labor and they include Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, and Stage 4. In nursing school, you must know that the Stage 1 of Labor has three phases. These phases are the Latent (early labor), Active, and Transition phases. Stage 1 of labor will be where the cervix will dilate (open) from 0 to 10 cm and will have hundred percent effacement (thinning). During the Latent phase of Stage 1, the cervix will dilate 1-4 cm, contractions will occur every 5 to 30 minutes and be 30-45 seconds in length. During the active phase of stage 1, the cervix will dilate to 4 to 7 cm and thin (dilation will be 1 cm per hour), and contractions will be noticeably stronger and longer (45 to 60 seconds) every 3 to 5 minutes. The next phase, which is the transition phase, will be the shortest but most intense in regards to the strength and duration of contractions. During the transition phase, the cervix dilates from 8 to 10 cm and thins completely. This phase will lead to Stage 2 of Labor. Stage 2 of labor begins when the cervix has fully dilated and ends when the baby is fully delivered. Stage 3 of labor begins when the baby is fully delivered and ends when the placenta is delivered. Stage 4 of Labor is the first 1-4 hours after the delivery of the placenta and is the time when the mother is at most risk for hemorrhage, infection, and other problems.

The dark history of conscription and forced labor behind Japan's Hashima Island,
하시마섬 유네스코 세계유산 등재 2년... 그 후? Hashima island. One of dozens of controversial sites Japan has pushed to gain UNESCO World Heritage recognition. A proud symbol of Japan's rapid industrialization. Contrary to the image Tokyo is promoting it's where hundreds of Koreans were taken and forced into labor in deadly undersea coal mines. Oh Jung-hee met with the few survivors to hear their stories. A 15-second-long video has been lighting up New York's Times Square since Monday. It aims to shed light on a less well-known aspect of Hashima Island -- one of Japan's UNESCO World Heritage sites. "It's a fact that the island is listed as a world heritage site. So our ad starts with this fact, and then delves deeper into forced conscription and the 120 victims. It ends by saying that Hashima's true name is 'island of hell.'" Roughly 15 kilometers away from the city of Nagasaki in southwestern Japan... lies the uninhabited island of Hashima. Surrounded by a sea wall, and full of abandoned concrete buildings,... the island resembles a battleship, which is why it's commonly called Gunkanjima or "Battleship Island." The island is recognized as a symbol of Japan's rapid industrialization,... but has a dark history of conscription and forced labor. From 1940 to 1945, five hundred to eight hundred Koreans were forcibly taken to Hashima Island. Kim Hyung-seob is one of them. The exact date that he was taken to Japan -- November 17th, 1943 -- is one he can never forget. "I don't even want to talk about it. I can't explain how much we suffered. Eating was the biggest problem. They gave us dried sweet potato, beans and bean dregs. That's what they called 'food' for us." Korean laborers were neither well-fed nor well-paid.. And they had to spend more than 12 hours a day in the coal mine,... which is 1-thousand meters under the sea. Lee In-un is another survivor. He says... some laborers desperately tried to escape from 'hell'... but failed. "The land was visible from the island. It was right across the sea. Some tried to escape by swimming and holding onto wooden panels. But they died." "The dreary atmosphere of Hashima island can be seen through these photos here. And what's clearly noticeable is the difference in living environments between Japanese citizens and Korean laborers. The Japanese citizens living in modern, newly built apartments. In contrast, five hundred to eight hundred Korean laborers were crammed into these small buildings." Hashima Island was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015,... as one of the places symbolizing Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution. When Japan got the endorsement of the UNESCO advisory committee ICOMOS, Korea strongly protested against it,... claiming that having these places as world heritage sites hurts the victims' and UNESCO's dignity. At the 2015 UNESCO official meeting, Japan, for the first time on the international stage,... acknowledged there was forced labor. "There were a large number of Koreans and others who were brought against their will and forced to work under harsh conditions in the 1940s at some of the sites." But that was immediately reversed by the Japanese foreign minister Fumio Kishida. "The expression 'forced to work' does not mean 'forced labor.'" ICOMOS recommended that Japan take measures to help visitors understand the 'full history' of the sites... and Japan promised to establish information and commemoration centers. While an implementation report on that is due December 1st this year,... not much action has been taken within Japan. "According to what we're hearing from civil groups in Japan,... signboards installed at the facilities don't explain at all about conscription and forced labor. Rather, the authorities are interviewing the Japanese people who lived on the island back then... who say Hashima was not an 'island of hell' like what Koreans say." The Korean government is to raise the issue at the annual UNESCO World Heritage Committee meeting... currently taking place in Poland. The government expressed regret that no tangible measures have been taken in Japan over the last two years... and highlighted Japan's promise is not only an agreement with Korea, but with the whole world. Having an agreed view on history and remembering it is crucial in heading toward the future. For Korea, the first step would be recognizing Hashima Island and others as legacies of Japan's industrialization... and for Japan, to face the fact that colonization contributed to its industrialization.

Why NLC shut down  Lebanese firm ARTCO
As part of measures to buttress the essence of decent work day, observed annually every October 7th,leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday mobilised over 2,000 of its members to picket an expatriate construction firm in Abuja. The firm, Artco Industries Limited, allegedly owned by a Lebanese is said to be notorious for anti-labour practices, especially laying off staff arbitrarily. The NLC in observing this year’s edition of the ‘World Decent Work Day’, lamented the poor working condition of some employees across the federation. The day is set aside by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to examine the plight of workers all over the world with a view to canvassing issues that promote decent work environment. The theme for this year celebration is: “End Corporate Greed.” NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, who led the National Union of Civil Engineering, Construction, Furniture and Wood (NUCECFW) workers on the picketing exercise bemoaned the situation where employers lay off staff members without regard to the principle of collective bargaining agreement. Wabba alleged that Artco flouted the Industrial Arbitration Panel which had earlier ordered it to recall the 128 sacked workers, describing the company’s action as an affront on Nigeria’s laws. He berated the company for muzzling the workers’ rights to decent work envi-ronment. “By the company’s refusal to heed the ruling of the IAP, they have tried to undermine our laws. Under the Nigerian laws, no expatriate has the right to enslave workers. Workers are working here under harsh condition. Many have died, many are sick. “This should not be allowed to continue. Corporations in Nigeria must operate under the confines of our laws. If the Ministry of Labour has intervened and IAP, which has the statutory powers to intervene has intervened, I don’t see why those laws and pronouncement are not obeyed,” he stated. He demanded that the ruling of the arbitration panel be respected and all entitlements due to the sacked workers be paid to them. According to him, NLC members would continue to occupy the company until it respects the laws of the land. Speaking on the import of the World Decent Work Day celebration, Wabba noted that the day was carved out by the ILO to draw attention of corporations across the world to issue of decent work environment. He stressed that, the working condition of the Nigerian workers in particular, was pathetic. “We demand, as we match for the 2016 World Decent Work Day, that a labourer, a pensioner deserves his wages. There must be dignity in labour. Let us collectively end corporate greed, let there be enough so that there will be shared posterity. Wabba equally used the protest to restate calls for the review of the minimum wage, insisting that N18,000 minimum wage to workers was no longer visible in the face of the current economic realities. As part of the strategies to ensure redistribution of wealth, he advocated for the entrenchment of tax justice system in which corporation and individual would pay tax according to the law of the land. He said: “The N18,000 minimum wage as of today is less than $38; it can no longer take us home. Because of corporate greed, our workers have been subjected to serious dehumanisation. “Our political elite must end corporate greed, corporation around the world must end cooperate greed. There must be shared posterity. Equality between thehave and the have-not must continue to drive our process of development.”

🇮🇳 India: The Lost Boys | 101 East
India: The Lost Boys Karma,16, has worked as a miner for over a year in India's northeastern state of Meghalaya, crawling deep inside a 'rat-hole' tunnel to dig coal for seven hours a day. "Inside it is very unstable. The smell is awful," he said sitting on a pile of coal. "It is so dirty, and it is difficult to move. You breathe in the coal and the dust. People get sick like this. There is no water to drink and it is so muddy. It is not nice at all." Child rights activists have reported that there are thousands of children like Karma working in Meghalaya's coal pits, because only those who are small in size are able fit in the claustrophobic tunnels. Many of them, like Karma, are believed to be from neighbouring Indian states, or from nearby Nepal and Bangladesh. Hasina Kharbhih has been fighting the exploitation of these children for several years through her NGO Impulse. She said agents working for mine owners help traffic children to the coal-rich Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya. They promise impoverished parents high salaries in return for their children's work, but fail to mention the dangerous conditions they will be living in. The mines often flood without warning or cave in, trapping and killing workers. There is rarely any compensation for the victims. "If we die, we die," said Ram Kumar Rai, 40, a Nepalese miner in Jaintia Hills. "They just bury us here. If we live, we suffer and we can't earn. We rot here and die. People who have money, friends or family here, their body will be sent back to Nepal. And those who don’t have anyone, they will just throw their bodies here or there." Rai was recently trapped in a tunnel after a massive rock fell on him. He had severe pain in his back and chest but received no compensation or money for medical treatment from the mine owner. "When someone dies, they hide the body so no one will know. That way the owner does not pay compensation to the family. He doesn't pay a single cent," he said. There are several national laws in India that set labour and safety standards for mines, and ban children aged under 18 from working there. But the industry in Meghalaya is openly flouting these regulations because the state government has failed to implement these laws and punish offenders. Karma has been labouring here since he was 14. His family of seven moved to Jaintia Hills a few years ago from Assam, desperately searching for work. His father had just died of tuberculosis after spending a lifetime in Meghalaya's mines. "I would like to have the chance to study but then my brother would be the only one working and we cannot afford it. And if I try to do another job, the salary would be less. So do we eat or do I go to school?" Karma said. Karma works most days, using a pick-axe to remove coal from the walls of the tunnels. "When I first went in the rat-hole, I was so scared," he said. "I thought the roof would fall on me. My knees were all scratched, but after two weeks I got used to it." "There are boys who are nine to 10 years of age who are doing this work. Younger than that they cannot do it." Despite several reports by the media and child advocates, Ampareen Lyngdoh, Meghalaya's labour minister, said she had yet to see hard evidence of young labourers. "The mining owners were telling me that a child actually cannot pull out the coal from the mine," she said from her office in the state's capital, Shillong. "You need to verify the ages of these so-called children. We are a community which is very small built. If you looked at my face you would not know how old I am. I can challenge you on that. So I might look sweet 16 but my age is something else. "Every time we rescue these so-called children, they come to a medical officer and they manage to get a certificate which says they are above such and such age." Despite her reservations, Lyngdoh said the government is drafting the state's first ever mining policy so they can register all mine owners and set standards for what they can and cannot do. Child labour is banned under these guidelines but 'rat-hole' mining is not, which is why children are employed in the first place. Child rights activist Hasina Kharbhih is sceptical about the state government's sincerity in tackling child labour. "The political will has not been there because half of the mines are also owned by a lot of political leaders. So definitely there is a vested interest of the political leaders to actually ensure that you slow down the whole process of whatever complaint is coming," she said. "These people have no rights at all. A democratic country like India will not be developing and prospering through violation of rights. It is inhumane."

South Africa's Implats Shuts Mines Ahead Of Platinum Strike
South Africa's Impala Platinum shut its Rustenburg operations on Wednesday, a day before a planned strike over wages across the country's platinum belt by the hardline Association of Mineworkers and Construction union. AMCU, the platinum industry's main trade union, plans to strike from Thursday at Implats, Anglo American Platinum and Lonmin, the top three producers of the metal used in emissions-capping catalytic converters in cars. The union had also planned to strike in the gold sector but a court ruled that the strike be suspended pending a review of its legality. Around 100,000 workers or a fifth of South Africa's mining labor force could put down tools or be prevented from crossing picket lines in a stoppage that would hit over half of global platinum production. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/businessNews/~3/eyB1VsWvQbI/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The 33 - Official Trailer [HD]
The 33 - in theaters November 13th. http://the33movie.com https://www.facebook.com/the33movie --- From Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures comes the unforgettable true story of “The 33.” In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon. The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The main cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. Patricia Riggen directed “The 33” from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez, Alan Zhang and José Luis Escolar served as executive producers. The behind-the-scene creative team included cinematographer Checco Varese, production designer Marco Niro, editor Michael Tronick and Oscar-nominated costume designer Paco Delgado (“Les Misérables”). The Academy Award-winning team of Alex Henning and Ben Grossman (“Hugo”) supervised the visual effects. The score was composed by Oscar winner James Horner (“Titanic”). “The 33” was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama desert just kilometers away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia. A presentation of Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures, “The 33” is slated to open on November 13, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Interns deserve fair compensation - MPP Schein
PROTECTION FOR WORKERS Mr. Jonah Schein: My question is to the Premier. Premier, people who go to work each day in this province deserve fair compensation. Unfortunately, thousands of young people in Ontario work for no pay. They receive no compensation and they have few rights or protections in their workplace. Despite clear rules regarding unpaid internships, most of these workers are reluctant to speak up and risk being blacklisted by their employers. The current complaint-based system is unfair and it's ineffective. When will the Liberal government do its job and proactively enforce the law on unpaid internships? Hon. Kathleen O. Wynne: I appreciate the question from the member for Davenport. It's very important to me that we make sure that interns in these situations are fairly treated. I think it's a very good issue to raise. As far as health and safety for interns, all workers in Ontario should be covered by the Occupational Health and Safety Act. We're currently looking at including co-op students working through accredited university and college programs under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act. In terms of the Employment Standards Act, the rules on internships are very clear. While most workers in Ontario are covered by the Employment Standards Act, there's a narrow exemption for co-op students, and this exemption is only for accredited university and college programs to give their students a valuable opportunity for workplace experience while they're pursuing their degree. We believe that covers the situation, but as I say, we're acting on including co-op students under health and safety. It's a very important issue. The Speaker (Hon. Dave Levac): Supplementary. Mr. Jonah Schein: Back to the Premier: You're not covering the situation. Often the best that most workers in these situations can hope for is a letter of reference that will help them get a paid job in the future. But, Speaker, vulnerable workers should not be forced to choose between their rights at work or a letter of reference. Enforcing the law should be responsibility of the Ontario government and not the responsibility of vulnerable young workers. This is the issue, this is what's critical here, and the solution is clear. When will this government do the hard work, admit that their complaints-based system does not work for unpaid interns and start to proactively enforce the law? Hon. Kathleen O. Wynne: As I say, there's only an exemption for some students who are involved with university and college degrees. It's the responsibility of the university or the college to ensure that the placements are fulfilling their mandate. If there is a situation where a worker in Ontario feels that their rights are being violated, they can—and should—get in touch with the Ministry of Labour, because we are very clear that that enforcement should be in place. We are acting on making sure that co-op students are included under the workplace safety act. As I say, I think it's important that we pursue this issue, that we make sure that there aren't other loopholes. We will continue to work with anyone, including the opposition, who wants to ensure that we have those gaps closed and we make sure that all workers in Ontario are safe.
