And when the mine caves in they’ll go to hell.
1:55 this guy is what a true American dedicated man should be like
I wish I could come work there....
I would do this job in a heartbeat. I couldnt crawl on my knees due to a fake leg, but i sure can scoot across or run a machine. Never been afraid of hard work, and still not despite survivng cancer.
Coal is not the cheapest or the most efficient. Coal is 35% efficient and Nuclear is 96%.
I hope coal mining never goes away because its honest productive work with a lot of history in it and if it goes that means its just one less job for those who can’t handle working in one confined space doing the same thing every day.
That's a badass tat
I used to make the concrete they use here. Shotcrete is what we called it
Coal is indispensable to our national security, it works 24-7 and it's the cheapest form of electrical generation going. The environmentalist don't like it, but if you check the record they don't like any form of electrical generation.
Yet coal mining kills you
This is the difference between white and black culture. The care in there parenting. White privilege <3
Slaving their lives away..... for the FILTHY JEW BANKERS..and their thugs...the US Gov....who own us ..with an illusion....THE DOLLAR....FUCK THEM...
These are the jobs that will go unfilled when the older generation passes on and starts to retire... No millennial will take jobs like these.
Why don't they dig it out to 7 ft tall so they can stand up?
I hate it for these guys man. I hope they can adjust in other industries so that work ethic doesnt go to waste. Hard working is an understatement
Just thinking out loud here but, if it is a wonderful brotherhood? Would it be possible for that industry to rotate/share the hours/job?? Sure is hard to help when we would like too? And please, I'm not being sarcastic or judgemental. We people have hard times at times. The rich have to work extra hard cause they definitely don't wanna lose. But the rest just wanna keep their family fed, clothed, roofed. Even when the bills are due, we still find a way to take care of extra stuff for family.
Sucks that these hard working guys put so much faith in a Fraud like Trump. They'll learn the hard way about trusting slick talking new York politicians.
Cost of winning open pit coal? $12/ton. Cost of winning coal underground? $68/ton.No amount of wishful thinking or dishonest political rhetoric is going to change that: Yes it is good honest work and dangerous too. My own family were all coal hewers for several generations, and I often heard the wish expressed that no one should ever have to earn a living by going underground again. As for the rest of it, older men falling sick with Silicosis, the risk of maiming or death; the pollution, -anyone old enough to remember days of 'smog'? Or when washing lines had to be cleaned before anything could be hung on them? Or the wave of bronchial disease that the local doctors had to deal with? Goodbye to all that. And good riddance
Coal miners are going the route of steel workers and rubber workers and copper smelting workers.
