I reported a few days ago about WV's lower than national average unemployment rate.

Well, forget about that.

Massey announcement --

Massey Energy Idles Black Castle Mine, 300 Affected

Massey Spokesperson Jeff Gillenwater tells WSAZ.com the mine went on "idle status" Thursday night as a result of market conditions

From today's Register-Herald

Mines being idled; nearly 600 affected

Nearly 600 employees who work in the coal industry in southern West Virginia received bad news Friday.

"Cleveland-based Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Pinnacle Mining Co., LLC, in Wyoming County, has indefinitely idled its Green Ridge No. 1 mine. In addition, its Pinnacle mine will halt production beginning Monday for approximately two months."

being critical of don blankenship is not going to put food on the table for any wv children. no question that coal companies have done terrible things and taken advantage of wv and its citizens. that does not change the fact that if we co not mine coal, we do not eat. do not be deceived most of the strip mining protesters are anti massey, they are not environmentalists. If we in wv do not as one group and one voice stand up to the al gore envioronmental wackos, then the last one out of southern wv please turn out the lights. oh i forgot there wont be any lights, since our electricity comes from coal

Once the deadbeats finally run the mines off, I hope they can figure out a way to light and heat their homes without coal. Maybe they've come up with a generator that runs on oxycontin and Mountain Dew.
