What's up with the work at the mines? Are they going under as it appears? What mines are hiring right now?
Thanks so much for any job leads. I have bills to pay.

M3 is a F*cking joke!! I work there and all their equipment is JUNK! You couldn't run coal with that junk if you wanted to. All they have done is blowed smoke up everyones ass and left them hanging. Darrell Wagner came and repo'ed their miner, pinner, scoop, and face drill at their Laurel Fork #2 mine the other day. They are lying to the men telling them that they are this great big company and now the truth is coming out! I knew when they changed their name from 3M to M3 that they were full of shit. They led everyone to believe that they were part of the real 3M company and then they,(the real 3M) made them stop using their trademark name. They even didn't pay the mens insurance payments for their health insurance, I called Anthem myself and had them check my policy and they said that it was cancelled for non payment of premiums. They had alot of good men to quit their jobs at other mines to come there with the lure of better pay and benefits, and now they have destroyed alot of them financially. Anyone that has worked in the mines for a long time will tell you that you have to spend money to make money. We couldn't get them to buy the parts to fix their junk. They wouldn't buy rock dust or curtains or anything. We all went up there yesterday (friday) to get our paychecks and they were giving us a bunch of bullshit about why the checks have been late two weeks in a row and that they couldn't tell us why we weren't getting to work and all kinds of crazy shit. We should have known that you can't take a bunch of surfboard riding beach bums from San Diego California and bring them to Kentucky and let them get into the coal business, they can't stick their finger in their ass let alone stick a miner in the coal. All I got to say is F*UCK M3 I'm going to get me a job somewhere else and if anyone else has any sense they will to!!!!!

They went to get their equipment and was denied access to the property, I think they are stalling to file bankruptcy. Why didn't y'all go ahead and lynch queer boy when your checks didn't come Friday. It's always " next week, your money will be here next week". They have stole and stretched their credit from one vendor to the next, they owe millions.

I was told Friday by some of the other men that they did get the equipment from Laurel Fork. M3 tried to stop them but they had the proper paper work to go repo it. I've got to work 8 hours in two weeks. We did get our checks on Friday, but they were supposed to get them on Thursday. They told us that they had to call "Jim Micelli" to make sure the "funds" were in the proper account before they could give them out. I had my bank to verify that it was a good check before I cashed it, because I did not want to have my own personal checks bouncing when I paid my bills. All they will tell us is that they are trying to get everything "lined out" before we can start back next Wednesday. They owe alot of money to their vendors and no one will credit them anymore. A truck driver brought a load of rockdust to Butcher Branch and the driver told them if they did not have a check there for him, his boss told him to bring it back. Guess what...he took it back. lol.. I called a few other people who work for other mines and I am going to look for a job elsewhere. M3 is going down fast and the other men better be looking hard for another job, I've been in the mines a long time and I know when it's time to go.

Had a similar experience many years ago with some guys out of Florida that did the same thing . Checks started being late and finally they backed up and paid all of us and i am still holding the BAD CHECKS . They got out of town the day they issued the checks and haven't been seen since .

Is it not some type of unfair work practice to let a man's health insurance laps when he is still paying his portion of the premiums? Should the miners not been given some sort of notice that 3m could no longer pay their part? Someone needs to call Frankford.

Hi ,...I'm reading you're posts above and I'm on the short list for a job with M3 Energy Resources base out of San Diego. M3 told me they have a contract for coal work in Kentucky where I live so I'm hopeful. Are you all employed by this company and still having problems or are you talking about a different company?
