I agree. Let the new guys take less pay. Give the call backs their pay back. They deserve it!

I know some that is still working got their wages cut back 5 dollars less on the hour within 2 cut backs..That's quiet a bit when you add that up.

And I think it's fine to hire at whatever wage they choose but wrong to lower cyour wage period. This is what the Republicans have tried to do for centuries. Busting unions leave ppl without any power to avoid working in sweatshop conditions at very low wages and with few to no benefits. If the Republicans get their way....the next step will kill overtime pay and you will receive normal wages for this. It's sad how the coal miners fell for their enemies lies...the Republican party talking points, instead of getting the truth.

No COAL sales and they are hiring more doesn't sound like a very smart business move. Theyvmust be planning to take advantage of coalminers desperate for work. There should be a law against such stupid business decisions.
