you took that very wrong...I am all for putting jobs on the table but when something good happens around here they give our jobs to all the out of towners not us.....we are the coal miners here.right here mingo co miners not from virginia we need jobs sorry for not saying that right
Hopefully, once the plant begins operating there will be a need for more coal and more coal miners. But, people will also be needed to work at the plant itself and I wonder if we have local people who are trained and qualify for the jobs the plant will bring. I do know that if I were looking for a job at this plant, I'd be doing all I could to fine out what jobs will be available and making sure I was qualified.
