Aussie miners fired over Harlem Shake - WTF? But its okay for the MILITARY?
[link to www.cbc.ca]

"Up to 15 miners were fired from their high-paying jobs in an Australian gold mine after a Harlem Shake performance underground was deemed a safety hazard, a newspaper reported on Monday.

A YouTube video shows eight miners wearing safety gear while performing the convulsive dance in the Agnew Gold Mine last week. The West Australian newspaper quoted a sacked worker who wouldn't give his name as saying up to 15 people were fired, including some who watched the performance but did not participate."
 Quoting: link


These guy earned six figure salaries the article goes on to say ...



I don't get it. There are how many videos of various military personnel doing the same thing? I would have thought the military folks would have gotten in trouble ...

Underground under millions upon millions of tons of rock is NOT the place to act like a total dickhead..which is what all those into the harlem shake are doing.

Also..they dont get paid $50 or more an HOUR to act like a total dickhead on the companies TIME!

If I was the boss i would have sent them all walking to.

Mining underground is NO PLACE to act like a total dickhead.

Any excuse to fire these inbreds who jump onto a 'fad'. Its just a shame these types of virals don't involve sticking a bullet through your head as the world could do with ridding of these morons.

I'm not disagreeing and frankly, I think the entire Harlem Shake thing is stupid. But I've seen a ton of military videos of the same thing -



I would have thought they would have been reprimanded at least.

Edit: I mean they're dancing ON THE fucking JET!

mines here have stringent safety measures, many have been sued.
not only were they fired, they were banned from working in other mines.

had the company not done this, all other workers would have been able to sue the company for allowing it in the workplace, and putting them at risk.

Wow. Again, I agree how stupid it is and I don't think it has any place at your work no matter what that is. But that is a little harsh.

I am torn between wanting to call them idiots (they must have known the strict rules) and feeling badly for them.

Maybe someone should send their lawyer the idiots dancing on the Jet ...
