“The pandemic is already widening social and economic divisions. Shielding corporations from accountability will endanger workers, consumers, and patients, and make the pandemic even worse.”
I find it appalling that coal companies are attempting to kneecap critical programs that help former coal regions and sick miners during this #COVID19 crisis.
"Now, to benefit coal interests, the U.S. EPA wants to simply ignore the health impacts that occur below their self-imposed limit."
"Because of the inherent health risks for mine workers, we can easily see the need for a health system that guarantees they get the care they need. Only Medicare for All solves these problems, and provides the security workers need."
But figuring out who owns abandoned mines in Appalachia is harder than you’d think.
A coal mining company has been writing protest letters for allied policymakers and business groups. These letters are almost identical to one another requesting time extensions to begin implementing new rules in dictating the coal industry. Sketchy, right?
