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.
Thumbs up if Arthur Morgan brought u here!!!!!
5:10 that politician has never been interviewed before 😂
Don't worry my coal miners con't to vote for Trump cause he'll take care of ya. Say hi to Jesus for me when you goto heaven.
I ain’t got nothing to say. Many of them voted Trump Trump Trump. They got their coal. They don’t want Obamacare cause he black. Trump trump trump. Now here we are. No cure for the disease and trump wants to throw all of their asses off healthcare with preexisting conditions back on the line to discriminate all of their asses. Trump loves ya, that is why it is all back KY and it ain’t going away. You want to fix it, vote against the Republican agenda. If not, enjoy the Trump and don’t complain. Bye.
They don't care about dying, as long as they're unionized they're making great wage and family's taken care of for life!!!! Where's the God Damn caboose to take me the the face!!!!!
You're surprised that Republicans care more about coal companies and the bottom line rather than coal worker's and their health?
Special interest!! and guess to which political party he belongs to?!
Rep Koenig "...Well, we will find out if it's a problem" Obviously not a problem for him or anyone he knows.
breathing in dust particles all day long. What could go wrong? Every single of those men in the cave, should be wearing a full face mask with oxygen being fed into it. I dont get how OHSA doesnt step in
people are acting like its just trump's fault. both parties are different flavors of shit.
Coal miners have been dying of cancer for years and years. The families are poor. They live from paycheck to paycheck. The extremely wealthy mine owners do not do anything to help these people . This medical system does not take care of these dying men either. The sludge from coal is polluting water-ground water and streams and even rivers. To increase the coal production and not put effort into finding alternative energy methods is a political issue.
I know it would cost more money but why aren't miners working in something like a spacesuit. The coming medical costs will exceed the expenditures.
this is just another of example of poor people voting against their interest

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.
