About: Historic Red Ore Mines Of The Tennessee Coal & Iron Company


TCI, there''s a crime behind every fortune, and in this case they used leased, but, unpaid convict labor, who had to work 12-16 hours a day, in wretched, filthy, conditions were thousands were worked to death (20% mortality rate) and many others maimed. The use of convict labor, depressed wages for paid labor and bludgeon unions. Later, in 1907 TCI company merged with U.S. Steel, founded by the likes of Andrew Carniege and J. P. Morgan. What a shameful record. Reminds one of Nazi Germany using slave labor for their war efforts and their steel industry.
