God bless those guys! Our nation needs coal and we have plenty of it. I'm curious as to why they don't wear masks? Or do they?

My dad , My grandfathers, uncles were coal miners. I don't recall dad ever wearing a mask, but that doesn't mean he didn't and certainly doesn't mean they don't now. I am like you, It seems they could. I just remember seeing only the whites of his eyes so many times. My dad also had black lung. But he started working in a coal mines at 9 years old, making .25cents a day... A lot has changed since then.

Sorry, but I believe the Federal Government should not be involved in this issue. We have too much government in issues that are between the people and industry. People choose to work the mines. Many jobs have risks we are willing to take to pay our bills. Federal government should remain within the limits of the U.S. Constitution. Too much government means loss of freedom.

This is just not safe and from what my doctor has said can cause cancer also. These brave people doing this work need all the best safety equipment available to protect their lungs from this dangerous black coal dust, please make a change for these men and women!
