System Says 600 Miners To Lose Jobs!

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — Union officials said Thursday (December 31, 2015) that nearly 600 coal miners could lose their jobs at Murray Energy Corp. mines in West Virginia and Ohio, dealing another blow to the beaten-down industry and Appalachian region.

According to the United Mine Workers of America, 532 of the planned layoffs would occur at five Murray mines in northern West Virginia. About 82 to 125 miners would lose jobs at each mine.
