Win us with honest trifles

Barrick (ABX) at Lumwana

Last week as part of its year-end results announcement, Barrick (ABX) told us it was putting its Lumwana mine on care and maintenance. Today we have this from Reuters:

Feb 23 (Reuters) – Over 2,000 unionised workers at the Lumwana copper mine owned by Barrick Gold Corp. downed tools on Monday demanding an explanation of their fate when the company closes the operation, a senior government official said.

In other words, no need for the company to shut things, the workers are doing it all by themselves. 
Weird thing, this capitalism.
