The coal game is over, start retraining now while you can.
Why cant they make it standing height?
Can I join my hands with u guys .I have done my Bsc in Geology
I respect these men thank you from an American ☺👍
Two words, move away. But hey black lungs cool
Thanks to coal miners my house is warm in the winter. Thank you
Cole is dead you damn dummies and it's highly dangerous to mine. Why don't you stop wasting time whining about coal jobs going away and learn some green energy job skills. There's a chance for you to make even more money.
I just installed a coal burning boiler in my house, it burns coal, wood pellets or natgas. Coal is $4 a 40 lb bag, and pellets are $6 a 40 lb bag. Adding a solar hot water system next year.
BAN MINING......... Let the bastards freeze in the dark !!!
"providing great jobs" = crawling around on your hands and knees in carcinogenic environments for chump change
Coal is a disgusting dirty fuel, how could you work for something that is so environmentally damaging? But I honor you too because I would NEVER do that.
Get these brainwashed infantrymen out of there so they can live twice as long with their children.
I know exactly where you are located.Ran up and down RT 22 hauling coal for many years. Great video!
Early coalminers did the work because they had to, today people can get an education to get out of the mines...which is what every miner's goal has always been, to get out of mining. Coalminers today must not be smart enough to get that college degree.
But black lung... Its almost inevitable from what I've read and seen. Why do that to yourself? Relocate and get a trade/degree so you can do something else. Don't be married to a spot so much so that you can't take care of yourself and prevent lung disease later in life. I took a long winding path in life and landed in a job where I can make the money and not die from coal dust. Earlier in my life I was working risky jobs. Go look at an engineering technology degree. A degree with your work expeirence and work ethic would go a long, long way towards being out of the mine - or solving problems like coal dust risks. Good luck to you all. I do think about coal miners when I'm warm/cool in our house (all electric appliances).
Those low ceilings make me clausterphobic. I would just be imagining that roof collapsing the whole time.

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.
