For over a century, South Africa’s economy has been built around mining and agriculture. Millions of black workers gave of their sweat and blood for very little in return in these industries while the economy grew and the big bosses, mainly foreign and local white monopoly capital, profited handsomely. Since the late 1980s the mining sector has shrunk and thousands of workers were laid off, many banished to the former homelands of Apartheid South Africa and neighbouring countries. Many have since struggled to survive and relied on retirement and other benefits due to them. However, this was not forthcoming, leaving many miners and other workers and their widows destitute.
