As part of an on-going program of handing over South Africa to Blacks, oil and gas giant, Sasol, is now facing a massive labor strike by White employees who claim they are being excluded from a “blacks only” ownership benefits program:
South Africa’s Solidarity trade union is set to stage a strike against a share ownership plan offered exclusively to black staff at oil and gas major Sasol. The union says the firm’s white workers are facing racial exclusion.
“We intend to switch off a different section of Sasol each day by means of well-laid and strategic plans,” the 6,300-person union said in a statement.
“We are getting overwhelming support from the community. We expect hundreds of people from the community to join the Sasol employees in a mass rally. There are even businesses who said they will close so that they will be able to participate.”
Under the current legislation, South African businesses are mandated to meet quotas on black ownership, employment and acquisition. The measure was imposed by the country’s government as part of a broader program aimed at countering decades of omission under apartheid.
“This will be the first time in the history of South Africa that white employees strike because of racial exclusion, 89 percent of Sasol workers in Sasolburg and Secunda voted in favor of industrial action,” the statement reads.
Last year, the firm pledged to increase its black ownership levels in Sasol South Africa to at least 25 percent in a 21 billion rand ($1.5 billion) deal.
“We have activated contingency measures to minimize potential disruption to our operations,” the company told Reuters, stressing that it received notification from the trade union.
The event comes amid a background of black economic empowerment reforms, currently implemented by the country’s ruling African National Congress (ANC). The government agenda also includes a widely-disputed land reform plan that will allow the state to take away farm lands from white owners and give them to landless black citizens.
Everyone knows–especially liberals–that Blacks cannot compete fairly with Whites in the marketplace, which is why so-called “equality” must be forced down people’s throats with the barrel of a gun–otherwise no one in their right mind would accept it. And it will always backfire because they must discriminate against Whites in order to make it appear that Blacks are on the same level–but it will always be only the appearance of equality.
If Whites go on strike over this issue, the economy of South Africa could grind to a halt as their largest oil and gas producer faces worker stoppages by Whites.
Ironically, if Blacks went on strike over any issue, no one would notice–and the company would still operate without many problems.
In fact, if Blacks disappeared from the entire country of South Africa, the economy would be booming–and would be among the most advanced in the world.
