Sounds like a good business move to me, if I were in the mining industry I'd replace workers with machines whenever I could! They don't complain, they don't get injured or trap during cave-ins, and the machine is much more productive and cost-efficient than a human at menial jobs like that. All these minors should take the chance to get the heck out of that dangerous, dead-end job and get some retraining, and get out into a real career!
