Dewey Moore knows that coal miners have to fight daily for a safe workplace. To hear how miners who make safety complaints today are treated by non-union coal operators, check out Raymond Crooke's song "Big Coal Don't Like This Man At All" on YouTube. It tells the true story of Kentucky coal miner Charles Scott Howard, who stood up for safety at an underground mine operated by Arch Coal and was fired as a result. He filed a whistleblower case, won his job back and is working in the mines again!
When Dewey needs to file for black lung benefits, have him call the black lung experts at the Appalachian Citizens Law Center in Whitesburg (Letcher County).
Hi Jack sorry that you say that as Dewey wrote this song years ago. One of his fellow workers that worked with him over the years asked me to post it as they really liked it when he sang it for them when they were working. If theres a problem I will be happy to pass it on to Dewey and his lawyer. You can contact him on Facebook
Thanks Tony2581, Dewey has worked in the mines most of his adult life and now has 2nd stage black lung. I am guessing 15 to 20 years. I will ask him and post back.
Dewey --- It sounds as if you worked in low coal in eastern kentucky...! If so, where and for how many years? I really appreciate your fine song! Best wishes, Tony
Dewey said that is Steve McKenny
I think it is but I am not sure will ask Dewey and post back.
Is that Jim Hall?
