First Quantum miners have resorted to putting sand in engines of mining trucks as a way of protesting poor salaries.
In January, First Quantum rescinded it’s decision to prune workers. In the last quarter of 2018 First Quantum announced plans to reduce its workforce due to new mining taxes imposed by PF. But the mining company instead reduced salaries of workers massively leaving miners depressed. But PF praise singers went on rooftops celebrating how PF has saved jobs.
