I have to say Ken American Resources is the best coal mine around. The employees get almost every weekend off and crazy amounts of royalty every two weeks. It seems like a really good place to work. I don't work there but I am going to try to get a Job there. I'm currently at Armstrong coal.

They have been working weekends lately because they have a rock fall on the belt line but they are up and running now trying to get there goal for this month. They have already hit budget. Any other time they have every weekend off.

I remember my non-union days with sadness, I remember my union days with pride and joy. I realize all mines and miners can't be union, but my goodness, having the union at your back gives you a sense of unity, safety, and the freedom to speak up if you feel you have been done wrong.

Jim do you work at tva? I don't think you have any idea what you're talking about. I know for a fact that they would phase out other units in the tva system that dont have scrubbers or catalyst. So why not unit 3 then? Cause it's the money maker? Not really considering it is down more than unit 1 and unit 2 just set the world record for a cyclone boiler for longest running time without a shutdown. All 3 units have the same exact standard emissions. There are alot older plants with alot less output and hardly any emissions in the tva system.
