Hey Martin is a good man he is the Pastor at my Church. I don't think that he deserves to be talked about he never does nothing but help people. You should come and join us sometime. JESUS LOVES YOU.

Massey is one of the best paid mines in Harlan County. They are not shutting down. Their one of the the only mines with all the permits to mine right now. So i don't see them going anywhere anytime soon. I hear they are going to buy out Joe Bennet also.

massey pays great just as good or better than any mines around as a matter of fact they pay more than long mountain does... as far as leaving not true they have more permits than alot right now.. as to haha that said they are leaving are you the one they fired the other night.. joe bennetts mines may not be a great place to work but i heard they do make pretty good as well. instead of trying to put peoples jobs down lets be glad at least some mines are still working... grow up..

They had Martin working for $11 an hour for like three months underground. Now they gave him supplyman pay, which isn't much more [like $15 an hour]. I reckon he only missed one day in a whole year from last Feb 09 til now], and that was because his wife was sick in the hospital the other day. And one thing I'm sure of, he is one of the few guys there at Massey that prays for all the men that work there. I'm sure he has prayed for you.

that sounds about right.

dirty ass coal companys. and that pay is nothing near ln mtn. hell i think the lowest lone mtn man makes like 20.00hr, they want people, i suggest any massey guy wanting a job goes and sees bill hanes at ln mtn..or rick rallieh at black mtn.

and i doubt them buying out joe, maybe joe buying out them is more believeable. hell their not paying no more than joe so he could keep their wages the same and nobody would wine and cry lol.

either way, i think it's funny. ha ha ha ha. people came on here several times saying how massey was this and that, yeah looks like it the best place in the world now. it don't pay, it has a proven track record of leaving when times get tough, now its people thats working there is fighting here. so yeah, i really want to run and put my application in.

the lowest paid underground miner at massey makes at least 23 dollars an hour. so you dont know as much as you think now do you. as far as lone mtn right now black mtn and massey are paying way better than them, this came stright from one of the workers. If this is not true then why are men leaving there.. yes lone mountain may be a good place to work also but the truth is massey and black mountain are paying more.. as for leaving right now any mines may shut down any given day.. why are you so worried about massey anyway..

My husband works at Black Mountain and makes 28.50 and he's not a boss! They have great benefits, bonuses, the whole deal! I heard lone mnt didn't get their bonuses at Christmas this year because they couldn't afford it. My husband did. I am so thankful for all they do for their guys! They are a great company to work for!!!!

I've heard of this peice of shit. Everybody that you talk to that works their thinks the same. It seems like somebody would be watching him and dock his pay. I mean he shouldn't be getting paid to drink coffee and smoke cigs. Hell if that is the case F^CK Lone Mnt. I'm comeing back. I'll talk to Den and see if I can have a job like that.

ill bet that about half of the people talking crap about massey are a bunch af food stamp drawing bums who just couldnt handle an honest days work if they had to .and furthermore if you do work at black mountian or lone mountian or wherever it may be guess what we are making it just fine without you right now so by all means stay right where you are if you dont want to be part of an elete group of men like you will find at massey then stay where you are with the rest of the bottom feeders. wedo not need you. but keep this one thing in mind .massey energy is the future of coal mining in harlan county we will be here long after all the rest have come and gone .
