and coal-energy is bad for the environment.
why not more nations? everywhere in the world it should be forbidden to send people in dangerous mines. not only american states.please try to make energy with sun, wind and water. it is possible and no one will get sick or die.
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.
My Dad died from black lung, the benefits he fought for and won were taken away!
David worked in an under ground coal mine for some 20 years,,, he would cough up heaps and heaps of black shit...........
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 .
IS TIME TO KEEP OUR WORKERS OUT OF CONTAMINATION.
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...........
My dad had black lung it was really bad. I remember him up late at night walking the floors because he would have a hard time breathing.
