I work for an underground coal mine based in Ohio. Have for the last 10 years. Good living, honest work, and to me enjoyable work.
Tomorrow we are all heading to D.C. to protest global warming, dust laws, and a few other things for good measure. A lot of these mindless regulations and knee jerk reactions are hurting our industry. And its time for us to stand up for ourselves and make it known how we feel about people trying to tell us how to run our mine but they have never even been to a coal mine.
Not sure where most of you stand politically, I do not want this to turn into a political debate! Please.
Making this post to share some pictures, and maybe a video or two. Us hard working guys can go out there and play in the capital too!
I've never been to DC so it should be a pretty cool visit either way.
