Minority shareholders, or people that own less than 50% of the company, are ones that can be taken advantage of by other shareholders if they either in whole or in concert with other people own the majority of the stock in the company. Now, obviously you have to trust these people because you're going to be going into business with them. But those people, if they treat you unfairly, don't let you have access to books, don't allow you to share in dividends with they ... are perhaps giving dividends to themselves, you do have a way that you can proceed to enforce your rights, because you do have rights against majority shareholders oppressing you in any way with regard to the ownership interest.
