I agree because by the need to work actually is a must to survive, we should be careful when accepting a job is it complies with my body safety is you get injured, is there a police that grants me that if I fall sick in short term or long term dishabille.Who is going to grant my family later on.Of course this is a personal decision whether accept or not a job, but there is also a social impact on it that may affect you all.

We are living in 2012 not the 1800,s maybe Gina Rinehart could put a million dollar,s in instead of fighting with her children. Now that would be something .

I commend the people who have done this for decades and decades as a way of life for themselves, an un selfishly doing this work in the mines, so others could have comfort and many things. How much they have lost and continue loosing somethings they need and deserve.........why can't get more help....they are our brothers and sisters too...........

Everyone who has the least shred of decency and concern for their fellow humans should sign this petition. Why should we continue to let these coal companies sacrifice our people for the sake of their wallets? This is also another reason to work on alternative, renewable fuels, so this job becomes unnecessary. These strong, determined people should be able to have a job that won't kill them! PLEASE SIGN THIS!
