Why is nobody wearing a dusk mask. Im a 30 year HVAC tech working around asbestos, fiberglass, and mold. Put a mask on for fucks sake.
6 candy bars 3 bags of chips 4 cans of mnt dew 2 red bulls and 2 packs of cigarettes and he ask doctor, "why is my stomac hurting". ..lmao...duhhh!
Get rid of that orange piece of shit you Americans call president and the people might get some right jobs and stop shooting each other in your schools!
1:40 Screw you lady, your lucky you made it out of there.
80k for this house
I don't like the condescending tone of the interviewer. She needs to go live in Appalachia and make her living the hard way. Chances are great she won't last six months. All the liberal university degrees in the world are useless for mountain people.
Got damn 6:40 this man smokes AND works in a coal mine he's going to get lung CANCER
In 2019, $60K annual salary is $47,396 after taxes in Pike County, KY if filing married. Run the numbers for other zip codes at
The booth guy is real he walks where he talks alot of his type will hire the work done while they get far away there connection is not with the place they destroy
bunch of trash food plus smoking and drinking, yeah I see why they die young thank god for my culture and its healthier lifestyle.
My grandfather on my mom's side died from black lung. He mined coal in North Eastern PA; but he also had and sold slated from his quarry and was in the Navy. He didn't even mine as much as most coal miners and he still got it. my dad's dad also mines coal a little. He also was in the military and had had other jobs. He died young but not from mining. He had a heart attack. My dad moved away from North Eastern PA so he never mined coal. He was in the marines and was an engineer and worked at NIH. I am grateful he never had to work in the mines though he did sale on a nuclear ship 'The Savannah' and that is pretty dangerous too; but he didn't do that for long.
In Illinois there is no coal mining jobs not what you know but who you know there is a lot of coal in Illinois government stop that because middle class was doing ok and the tree hoggers
The liberals need to shut up. These are the real jobs. If all the field workers quit who is going to be building their houses, getting their heat sources, if it wasn't for us the California faggots would be homeless.
so what happens a dud bangs a miner is it still il legal
The company the owner doesn't give a shit about you. They have raped small towns across Appalachia. We need companies willing to invest in the people, the comunity. Stop the tax flow to the big cities bring the money back to Appalachia. I support coal but greed has nothing left for us.
Notice nobody would answer about the lung problems
Y’all might go three miles under the mountain but you won’t be taking me with you I assure u there🤗
That work will use him up young. And Medicare and Medicaid will pick up the bills for his failing heath. If republicans don't take it away.
Poor kid. Brought up on cigs and red bull. Wait
I love cigs and red bull.
Good for him to have a job making 60,000 plus medical and dental ! Dam with nothing more than a high school graduation that’s pretty sweet !
