of course there is. like i said from the start when everyone was bashing Obama over coal. where there is money to be made, someone will go get it. the real question is. is there any hope for coal miners and labor in general with the unions dying out? i say no

If the coal miners were smart they would vote the union in, if they want a decent wage and job security, safe place to work and retirement. Scabs make me sick. They ruined the whole industry for real coal miners.

i work nonunion and proud of it.
if you think ol' roberts is the key for the unions come back, you have lost your mind.
all he does is sit behind a desk, says yes to everything obama says and smokes big cigars while all the union men are laid off, starving.
when was the last time the union done anything to recruit new mines into the union?
how many men work a bunch of over time, knocking the laid off guys from being called back?
show me what the union has done to help it's men beside making ol' roberts fats and rich?

I never said anything about Roberts. Have you ever done anything to unionize your place of work? Why not? Its up to the coal miners to do it. Proud of being a scab and knocking real under coal miners out of their jobs. A scab to the highest degree. Was your Father a scab to? Don't put words in my mouth Goodwrench. You're not a coal miner, you're a construction demolition man destroying our mountains. Who did you know to get your pud job? The guys working over time are scabs. Do you really think you would be making that big money if it wasn't for the union. You scabs are all alike, just think about yourself s. Was your Grandfather a scab to? I'm a union man and all ways will be. Whwn the unions gone you are going to be sorry. You're already sorry, a sorry back stabbing scab. Do you ever work overtime you sorry scab, of course you do. Whats your logic Goodwrench, you're going to save the company so they can call back laid off workers. HA HA. You're a union buster. I don't buy your bullcrap for one minute. Its people like you that ruined it for real under ground coal miners. I bet you don't even know what a scab is. Don't get on here insulting my intelligence and expect me not to be offended.

blah blah blah... hell you and all the others elected roberts and a union is only as strong as it leadership. my grandfather marched and fought on blair mountain. i still have a smith and wesson revolver he carried there, and i'm sure he is rolling over in his grave because of the leadership you have elected. you have let the union slide, not me. i've worked union and nonunion and as long as my family is clothed and fed with a roof over their heads is all that matters. i bet you would let your family starve than work nonunion.

No I'm afraid not, you haven't paid your dues for a while, you know I need that money to pay for all my toys here in Washington. You know you sound like your all bark, I agree with Goodwrench, you would let your family starve, and probably send your wife out to work!!!

he was nonunion, fighting for the right to unionize.
let me tell you a little story.
i once talked to a man on welfare, a union miner. he was laid off but the nonunion jobs was out there.
he told me that he would rather his family live in a tent than work nonunion. i knew right then and there that he was a fool.
true story*
