No shit they are quiet. They are on camera being interviewed with mine officials watching. They aren’t going to really open up due to the fact they say anything they’ll be out of a job.
they deserve more money to work and live like that. either that or work 2 weeks on, 1 week off to let the body heal from the damage being done and to keep some sort of happiness and things to look forward to. the owner with the big house cares nothing for his workers or else he wouldn´t make them work 6 days a week.
damn look at all that white privilege
My mom feels the same as that woman feels about her sons when I’m out working the line
I'm from this part of the country people eat trash food and blame there heath on everything eles

World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
