Below is a snippet of his interview with coal miner, Tim- his first name is only given. Q: “How long have you been working in the mines?” A: “I have been working in the mines since I was 18, I’m 30 now. Roughly, I went to college, graduated in ’05. Been working full-time since ‘O5.” Q: “What did you go to college for?” A: “Business and communications, but I always knew I wanted to come back and work in the mines.” Q: “Was your goal to become a boss?” A: “Not really. I wanted to experience it all, actually.” Q: “What is your job title?” A: “Service foreman.” Q: “How do you become a service foreman?” A: “Well, state requirements are to even start mining you have to be 18. You pass a written test; you have to go to class. Take a 24-hour class then pass a written test. Then you get a green card. You have to have 45 working days to get your actual permit card. Then you have to have 3 years mining experience to be able to apply to be a service foreman and you have to pass another test. And, a current foreman has to sign off for your working days, it can’t just be anybody on the job site.” ","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1475682,"object_id":"kellylightblue_1370210347","particle_type":"image","picture":"https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/infogram-particles-700/kellylightblue_1370210347.png"},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1475539,"object_id":"kellylightblue_1370208589","particle_type":"image","picture":"https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/infogram-particles-700/kellylightblue_1370208589.jpg"},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1475722,"object_id":"kellylightblue1370210974","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"In conclusion, coal mining and mountaintop removal are harming the children of Appalachia. Their general health is at risk as the dangerous chemicals in the coal leak into the water supply. And the beautiful mountains they call home are being destroyed before their very eyes. Also, many of the children are being born with birth defects. In fact, the highest percentage of children born with defects in Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Virginia are where mountaintop removal and mining occur. Do we really want these children to have to suffer anymore? Is coal mining worth the price of innocent children?
