SA workers call to nationalise mines

Trade unions say government control of mining firms could end growing inequality between employees and their bosses.

    Striking workers are calling for the nationalisation of private mining companies in South Africa, as strikes continue at other mines in the country.

    Many trade union organisations say if the government took control of big mining firms it could end growing inequality and inadequate labour laws.
