That's actually a requirement to be in the current regime, and especially so at the top.

Lod...

Without Trump, white, straight, working class, Americans are going down.

After over two hundred years to be taken down from inside is a disgrace.

They're just shockingly DUMB! 'Land mines' -- I know what the term really means, but is she thinking there are air and sea mines too, or what? Space mines mebbe.

Compared to 100 million workers in the USA, those few lost jobs doesn't matter. Besides they are skilled workers and can get other jobs.

in West Virginia

We had the opportunity to be on the West Virginia Turnpike on several occasions. There was a mountain with a thick seam of coal maybe 15 or 20 feet thick.

One week we went thru there and the next week it was gone. They came in and chopped off the top of the mountain and hauled away the coal.

There is nothing there that can be reclaimed. At most they could put down some topsoil and plant a few trees.

But where would they get the topsoil? There are many other areas in Illinois and Iowa that were strip coal mines and absolutely NONE of it has been reclaimed to the best of my knowledge.

In Illinois the strip mines had spoil piles we would walk on and pick up Selenite crystals that had weathered out and were exposed on the surface.

In Iowa they would unearth these big coal balls near Oskaloosa. We would go in there and bust them open to get at the Altered Calcite that was inside of them. ;)

Where are those pipe fitters going to find work? They sure are not going to be reclaiming any of those coal mines in West Virginia. ;)

I'm certain they will have to take a cut in pay until they gain experience in a new job. They can be plumber's helpers, drive trucks, work in a warehouse. However, that is how it has always been when technology put people out of work. They find other jobs, perhaps at half their prior salaries for a couple of years until they get qualified at the journeymen level for higher pay.
