DESCRIPTION:
download PDF (138.0 kibibytes) In the wind-swept sands of California's Mojave desert sits a small town called Boron, population 2000. It is home to one of the largest borates mines in the world, where close to 600 workers blast, dig, process and transport the refined mineral to a thousand manufacturers around the world.. In the fall of 2009, the owners of this mine, the Rio Tinto Group, a British-Australian multinational company, decided to drastically cut the workers' benefits when the union contract expired in November. This documentary tells the David and Goliath story of how the workers faced financial hardships but stood strong during the 107 day lockout and beat back a multinational corporation. It further reveals Rio Tinto's egregious practices in the U.S. and around the globe--from Michigan to Australia to Bougainville.
