You are correct ... Production 1st ... Coal market is very tight & companies are cutting all corners to make a buck. We'll see more deaths & injuries coming our way ... Coal companies never change.

Did you see the new report that said that the company did not even give the men time to eat lunch how alert can you be on your job. If you are hungry and working on a skeleton crew.

Oh, when you work you burn calores and need nourishment to work alertly. That is why they want the young miners and inexperinced miners Because scare tactics the company threaten their jobs so they will not stop for a minute to eat. That is greed.

When Don and Massey bought the mines in WV and Ky you weren't allowed to bring a coffee or dinner bucket. You had to carry a sandwich in your shirt pocket, and eat while your equipment was still running. That's how all the companies want to operate, and it's too late to join the Union now, it's finished too.

Yup no lunch break at elk run and if you say something you go to a worse job than ever so you will quit. Many men ready to take your place. So if you don't do it someone else will.

i thought all Company's wanted to make harm to you and all of your family's.....when you fall they are sooooo happy......but in secret they were hoping you didn't get back up......i mean all the Companies i know do this Right? The employee is just a number ...not a human being......your just making them money....your skill's matter not....your not important to them.....heck's do they even know your name?:(
You know a human being that wants to do this?
You've Heard a "Boss" say this right?
Your stating these belief's because you know First Hand.....because your high up on that Ladder of success and are Deep in the Companies meeting's ....and you know this is how they speak of you?

Why wouldn't safety be number 1 ? What can you possibly gain via not having safety? Seriously ?

A happy worker who likes where he works wants their company to successes. Let your workers eat their lunch and they will be more productive at their jobs. Treat their like humans not slaves.

Lunch

My husband has worked for a little company, Massey, and now Alpha. He has never once complained about not being able to eat lunch. He has worked at quite a few mines, including UBB. Massey transferred him a couple times, but he never had a problem at any of the places he worked. I pack him big lunches and he usually shares with his buddies who didn't bring a lunch. He has stated lunch isn't always at the same time, but he has always been able to have lunch within a reasonable time frame. I do not know how other mines work, but he has always been treated as good at his mine. I am not trying to debate anything, just stating his experience.

They are Valuable every single time they go to work!!! i get tired of those who think different:/
