i can make it fine on 32 hours a week myself.if you cant pay the bills on on 30 or 40 hours,you really should not put yourself in the situation where it takes more to make it.

I wasn't speaking only to you, or even to you for that matter. I was stating that to the women bitching. I'm not saying every woman should work. I was simply saying that if you cannot make it on one income and you have to complain about it virtually then get a job. You obviously misperceived my message and took it to heart. I realize people have reasons, or excuses, as to why they can or do no work.. but if you cannot make it and you're struggling, then send that baby to Grandma's and get a job :)
Ok I have tried to be nice but you need to keep your mouth shut because like i said you do not know our situations!! this is our FIRST CHILD!!! and both GRANDMA's & GRANDPA's have jobs as well! along with all the aunts & uncles! & I do have a college degree for your information and just so you know I have tried to get a job for almost a year now but then I became pregnant & no one wants to hire someone who is pregnant & yes as soon as my baby is born & I am able, I plan to get out & look for a job, so you think to think about what you say before you are so quick to judge on me not working & saying people need to stop popping out kids if they cant afford them..We can afford our child we are about to have, I just think its a dang shame of how alpha are doing these men because they promised them so many things & then took it all back!!! and if you were my facebook friend, i'd delete you just because you are to quick to judge things you know nothing about!!

To the wives who keep responding: If what I said doesn't pertain to you then why get so irate? It only hurts if its true.. I'm speaking to all, not just one. Perceive it how you wanna, but that's my opinion and I will speak it when and where I want :)

And as for Alpha doing your husbands dirty.. grow some balls. People should have better sense then to work for a company with no union. Stand up to the company. I doubt 20 men would stand together and fight for there jobs. Writing it on FB and Topix isn't going to do anything about getting your hours raised.

So if that was your point, thats what you shoild have said! Am I confused about what you said? You say we should be working, or should we just have faith that GOD will provide? Which is it?
Don't TRY to act like you are above ANYONE else, first of all. God ALSO blesses us when we complain! I call it WORRY! You do not know anyones circumstances and you are also judging someones life that you have NO CLUE about. Is that not also wrong in Gods eyes? Get it right the next time you post. We are actually not complaining or talking to YOU specifically either, so don't take it as such. In fact, if your so independent take care of your own sins and leave our to us! We are worried about things. Have you not EVER worried about something? That doesn't mean you don't have fairh, or that you are bitching! If you think it is bitching, then YOU have a problem at the way you see things. We are very thankful! I am! I pray for everyone also! If I want to ask my friends anywhere on the internet to pray for me, that is my rite, and they also ask me to pray for them. That is why we are friends! If you are judging a friend on Facebook then you are NOT a friend and need not be mine! If tou are mine delete me TODAY, or give me a name and I will delete you. You are a troll, and I don't want to know you. I will pray for you tonight also. God Bless!
Lol where do you get that I'm trying to act better than anyone? Because I state my opinion I think I'm better? Are you serious!? Number one, worrying is not having faith. You are supposed to trust in the Lord with your whole heart and know that his will be done. Secondly, the ladies I was speaking of (which probably was not you) were "bitching".

Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying,‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Work Week

Harlan, KY

#79 Jan 16, 2012
A standard work week is 40 hours. Those 40 hours and the amount you are paid for that time should be more than enough money to live comfortably. Overtime is subjective, and anyone with any financial knowledge should realize that this should be considered win fall profits and should be saved for a rainy day, or for retirement. By counting, and depending on working your husband into the a early grave by working 50 to 60 hours a week is foolish. I suggest to make up for the lost hours that the wives get their ass off of Facebook and get a part-time job.

im glad alpha is cutting down the miners hours. they just waste their paychecks on gas-guzzlers and pills anyway. i for one am glad that Obama ordered Alpha to start shutting down coal.
