The Origins of Forced Labor in the Witwatersrand
Moeti, Moitsadi
Phylon, v47 n4 p276-84 Dec 1986
Gold mining brought a forced labor system to Witwatersrand, South Africa, in the 1880s as African laborers were rounded up from the hinterland and delivered to the mines. The system produced low wages, high mortality, and the loss of chances for upward mobility. Forced labor persists today in South African mines. (VM)
