Labor union thugs in South Africa have launched nationwide work stoppages to halt the rise of South Africa's emerging economy.
According to the BBC News, "Work has stopped at some of the world's biggest platinum mines, as thousands of South African workers have gone on strike demanding a huge pay rise."
Judge Hamilton Cele is providing legal protections for striking workers and encouraging them to lay down their tools.
As reported by the BBC, "This is the biggest industrial unrest in South Africa's platinum sector since the 2012 Marikana massacre, when police shot dead 34 striking miners. Unlike 2012, the current strike is legal."
More that 70,000 South African platinum workers plan to strike indefinetly.
