About: Eastern Kentucky Coal Mines
In 1979 there were close to 250,000 mining jobs in the US. By 2015 there were less than half of that, but production was at an all-time high. Machines and fracking combined to kill the mining jobs.
I’ve been at work about four years get ready go back underground myself , I have missed working i the mines.
I took a job as a sales rep right out of college working for a large consumer products company. My territory was based out of Johnson City Tennessee. I covered all of east TN, eastern KY, Southwest VA and a small portion of southern WV. I met some of the most kind hearted people up there. I learned to really enjoy living so close to the Appalachian Trail. Appalachia is a gorgeous place to drive through in the Fall. It’s depressing what has happened to the coal industry. It was booming when I lived up there.

my heart goes out to you all , here in the uk there are no coal mines left at all maybe one in the whole of uk is working and that is a small privately owned mine, it is not man or coal that causes what they call global warming its a natural secquence of change that mother earth goes through ; coal fired power stations could have smoke filtration systems installed that could take out all gasses and reburn them to make clean burn in the power stations .
How many UMW union bosses directed the men, the membership, men who's dues pays their salary; to vote Democrat. It was not a secret, any dumbass listening to what Ossama/obama would have clearly heard him say "and you're rates will necessarily skyrocket". What was he saying? He was saying that he was going to put a tax on coal fired power plants that would either put them out of business, or force them to spend super large sums of money to switch them to other fuels instead of coal. Do you remember what Hiltabeast said, she said it much more clearly, "I'm going to put coal miners out of business. That BS that the Dems are for the workin man was as much BS 100 years ago as it is now. read your history and look up what Granddaddy Dem FDR did to John L. Lewis, and the UMW in the 1940's.. Keep the union, clean house in the union, keep the union on union business (dealing with the company, and only the company, no union money spent on anything except UMW business not organizing somewhere else the other side of the world, or spent some place to elect Dems. ) vote against the Dems. If you don't you get what you deserve..
So happy President Trump got it. He for the coal mining man.
MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL YOU COAL MINERS. I LOVE COAL.

You gotta take what you can get even if it's minimum wage
My state has 6 coal fired power plants scheduled to convert to natural gas in the next 5 years. Coal is dead. It has done nothing but destroy the planet and keep Appalachia impoverished. I have been lectured by many stupid people from eastern KY and southern WV that every time I turn on the lights I should thank coal miners. Sorry, I converted my house to solar 13 years ago.
everyone can come back now. Trump will get your jobs back. The worst thing is the thought of these Kentuckians having to drink coal water just to work.
