I hope you're right. The miners that are busting their asses are all that's keeping the company afloat. The wigs sure as heck aren't doing anything to help matters.

if this was going to be a real layoff, it would have been on the news.
sometimes a mines will close for a week or so, if there are violations to correct.
and sometimes they do for vacations.
but i havent heard anything about a permanent or even temp layoff.
someone also mentioned cam had shut down, but i know that isnt true.
i know they are running back to back crews.

This is not a layoff they just gave the men a week off from work so they could get rid of some coal they have layin around.

McCoy told the men back in April to sign up on unemployment when they was off for that week. I called the unemployment office and they told me for my husband to go ahead and sign up on it but he may not get no money for it cause it'll take a few weeks or so to go through. So I guess that's what we will be doing this week so the next time he's off for a week maybe we can have some kind of pay coming in.
