Australian Miners Fired For Doing The Harlem Shake

Written by Ashli Redd/ CW44 Tampa Bay

I guess everyone doesn’t have a sense of humor.

The viral “Harlem Shake Video” that has been duplicated all over the United States, has made it’s way over to Australia.

At least 15 Australian miners were fired for participating in the “Harlem Shake Video.” Mine owner Barminco was quoted by stating that he “considered the stunt a safety issue and a breach of its core values of safety, integrity and excellence.”  There were also a number of people who simply watched the miners in action, without participating in the video, and they were terminated from the company as well.

I understand that there may have been a concern of safety for these workers, but from the video, it doesn’t display anything that looks harmful or hazardous.

You can check out the video here and decide if this was something that these workers should have been fired for!
