An apparently rich and privileged young man is sent by his industrialist father to deal with a potentially explosive labour strike on an Io mining colony. The miners are strange, troll-like, radiation-adapted beings who most people dismiss as barely human. The young man nevertheless agrees to meet with their leader and ultimately comes to question whose side he's on, the miners' or his father's? Originally published in Strange Bedfellows: An Anthology of Political Science Fiction.
