  •  "Met" coal not left in the ground (2+ / 0-)

    It's being shipped to China and India form a premium price. I'm well aware of the shut down in WV, I work in the mines in sw PA. Six died in 25 days, more have been injured.

    I agree minimum wage needs raised. Before going to the mines, I never made more than $12.50/hr. Minimum wage should be $10/hr at least. That's what I started in the mines at, for the first 6months.  With the price of everything increasing, it's hard. We are being shown who owns us.

    I want to create my own culture, I don't want to be entertained. - Lawrence Lessig (-7.25/-5.54)
