About: Coal Miners Are Dying Of Black Lung — A Kentucky Law Could Make It Harder To Claim Benefits (HBO)
“I mean, it's anti-science, is what it is. It's absurd,” says Wes Addington, a lawyer at the Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center

God bless you and your family Amen. Vote Racist Trump now.
I weep for these people, just trying to do an honest job. The government should be ashamed to allow this to continue.
Trump never did an honest days work in his life.
Citizens should get the same benefits as government. Government leaders should be charged and serve twice the jail time that a citizen gets and no special jails or conditions.
Koenig should be arrested. These people are getting rich off of protecting business over people. But the people are supposed to overthrow these criminal politicians and oligarchs who corrupt them. WTF did people really think the 2A was there for, to protect their families just in case of the unprecedented possibility of MS13 barging in on them at 2AM??
This headline was 150 year old news.
"Man invents telegraph"
"There are rhinoceroses"
"Canada declares independence"
And they will continue voting for republicans!
My grandfather passed in 1990 and worked in mines for from age 10 to 50’s .. the uk denied his claim, even after my mother appealed.
Fighting back against these greedy bastards Coal Owners is the only way to make a difference instead of digging coal we are digging our GRAVES too bloody sooner than Needed.Political leaders are letting down the American people.
wow...this dude doesnt even have his talking point ready when she asks diff btwn pulmonologist & radiologist. He's just thinking well..this is what the coal companies paid me to do & say &i haven't had to defend it yet dang it!
It's only stage 1. Cool! Back into the mine I go, then!
( THERE IS A WORK AROUND! )
1. Don't be a coal miner
2. Idk if a respirator works probably
3. OXYGEN TANK!, Get a E size it will last about 5-6 hrs or D which will last about 3-4 hrs. Dont know exactly if it would work but your mouth isnt coming into contact with the air around and they can be refilled. But keep 1 extra in your vehicle when first one runs out then refill at home or whatever.
Now obviously it sucks that these guys are getting sick, but in fairness from what I've seen your typical coal miner doesn't appear to be the sharpest, most forward thinking individual.
You have these people often earning twice the national average for several years, but end up basically broke a few months after being laid off because they were too stupid to treat their income as a windfall, instead choosing the high life. I guess this absence of long term thinking also plays into a lot of them getting black lung due to the discomfort of wearing breathing aparratus in the here and now.
Can't we make mask to help them
more safety regulations.
Simple solution standardize respirators to miners no more black lung liability
Sounds pretty awful. Hope they can be taken care of
Micah Bell infected him probably
If you never work in a mine you won't get black lung from that mine. Stop wanting to do stupid things. If someone shoots meth to feel good they're rightly regarded as fools. If you take a job because you are too hardheaded to move elsewhere and that job kills you, you should be regarded as a fool. Know what you can never have and stop wanting it. Rural shitholes are pretty but there are few jobs because of one thing you can never change. That is GEOGRAPHY. It's why outside investors don't invest in those areas. If you think they should and would turn a profit, do it yourself or close thy pie hole.
Is this that beautiful clean coal Trump was yapping about.
