Vale is the Problem
There have been many posts about this lately and I can’t help to wonder why some people are so quick to attack the workers trying to take a stand, rather than the Multi-Billion dollar company who made record profits last year while the wokers worked without a contract through the Pandemic.
The workers are not your enemy, they are your neighbours, your family, your community members. They are fighting for a fair contract.
Vale, making insane amounts of money, wants to claw back money to make themselves richer at the expense of their workers.
Why are you people more focused on how much the workers make, more than what Vale makes? Pawns fighting pawns, rather than looking at the bigger issue, corporate greed.
Why should the miners settle for less? It’s a simple answer, they shouldn’t. They should make zero consessions. Once you give up something, they will take more and more until there is nothing left.
If you want to be mad that the miners are striking, be mad at Vale for putting them in this positon. They don’t want to be jobless and strike pay isnt that much. They arent doing this because its fun, but because they have to.
Stand strong 6500! Solidarity!
