5 Ukrainian Coal Miners Tough Work

Ukrainian Coal Miners Tough Work

Posted on March 25, 2014 by tim





After these photos of coal miners getting back from their job were posted, a discussion sprung up in the comments about how much tougher working in a coal mine rather than in an office might be. Some say that the conditions in some coal mines have not changed much since hundred years ago. It is that rough that people have to kneel throughout their entire working day and use the sledgehammers and jackhammers to actually mine the coal. Their whole body gets covered in coal dust. More photos are inside:




It’s not clear if those photos are from Russia or Ukraine, because Ukraine has been cited as the number two coal producer in Europe with more than 145 coal mines across the country – mostly in the Eastern part.

    Their salary should have been much higher for such a job. Its dangerous and bad for their health, but now as the west has been so “green” and so “non” polluting, the coal business isn’t the best payed job. Well, it has never been. Its only the suite dressed guys in light, air conditioned offices who do real work who deserve real salary’s ;)
