Damn....check out Diane going down in a mine underground....that is journalism. Much respect.
Notice how easy this job is. Its not that hard, and of course.they are all making tons of money doing it. Notice its all white men.
Least these fucks got a great paying job for doing hard labor.
When did an 18 yr old become a child????? Oh yeah. you are a child if you are white, but if black/brown you are a man at 12.
Here we are giving billions to these stinking immigrants when our own children are going hungry in our own country! Got our vets sleeping next to fking dumpsters while the whole time these stinking immigrants are walking around with full bellies living in a better place then I do while the whole time we, Americans are paying for it all! Have you seen our so called dreamers? Just about every damn on of them are fatter then the pigs my cousins farm!
These coal miners look like zombies you can in their eyes they're afraid of something
Fuck coal
Ugh, I got claustrophobic watching this.
Starting salary $60,000 a year.

Congratulations, they made it in America. Most people die dreaming of $40,000 a year.
Scary carrying enough food for a few days if something happens 😳
I want a job in the coal mine any mine!
Back in the late 50's, I remember many kids in my grade school coming up from there. We lived in Chicago area. They found work in Mill. Interesting culture. True melting pot.
Help these kids instead of the evil illegals. Fuck illegals, deport them
We need labor unions and a viable communist party in this country. These men should be starting at 100k+ for that kind of work. I was getting even more than that to sit on my ass in front of a computer at 23, why would we not pay good wages to people who are doing real work?
