Why no letters about lost mining jobs?

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— I just got through reading a letter in the paper about how many jobs would be lost if and when they take the tolls off of the turnpike. Has anybody looked at how many miners have lost their jobs? I  haven’t read any letters to the editor about that. How about all the jobs that will be lost after they retire all of the coal-fired power plants? Coal mines and coal miners have been around a lot longer than the turnpike.

Let’s show the miners that the people care.
