Haven't they always had peepholes,even before women ever worked in the mines?
Several of WF finest umwa members are claiming that they did?
Ask Chic,he used to be the peep hole driller and the main peeper

If a woman wants to work in a coal mine, let the bitch pick up a shovel. It's a horrible career now since the UMWA shit their own bed.

Woman came from man's rib according to the Bible. Not from his back to be carried or his foot to be walked on. From his rib, to be at his side so she can hear when his stomach growls and she'll know when to cook his f*cking dinner.

There is one black man. One of my good buddies. I was on his crew for many years. He's one of the best around. The company paid awesome, good management but your life was mining. 7million tons a year with 130 hard working men. There ain't a woman around that could hang there, sorry ladies.

. Damn right...hes a hell of a miner and a great guy...i spent three yrs at that mine and three yrs at their sister mine in akin. We have minorities...but they must be able to perform the extremely rigorous tasks we perform daily...not one woman i know can do it...most men cant. Its indeed not amcoal...less men..more work...more output..more productivity....show me a woman who can do it and im sure she,d be hired...until then....galatia is just east of here.

I agree ^^^ mine works at Mach and I respect what he does and I'm proud. I know sure as hell I couldn't do more than half the things he has to. If any woman could, it ain't a woman.

I heard that place had two or three people killed before it even opened and is constantly flooded out with no provisions to get rid of Water. Sounds like a wonderful company

I worked in the mines for 13 1/2 years and I will tell you that I worked with several women that was better workers than some of the men! Hell, one young lady I had the pleasure to work with was one of the BEST workers in the whole mine!
