12 Dead Miners
The miners hadn't been "allowed" to organize a union.
In the past two years, the mine was cited 273 times for safety violations, of which about a third were classified as "significant and substantial," according to documents compiled by the Labor Department's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
Pray for the dead miners ... and for workers being "allowed" to organize for safe working conditions.
