The Coal Industry is going to great lengths to screw their former miners, upon whose labor their fortune and success was built, out of their Black Lung disability benefits.
The information comes from a report done by The Center for Public Integrity (www.PublicIntegrity.org) called Breathless and Burdened. The year-long study found doctors and lawyers are working at the behest of the coal industry to help defeat the benefits claims of miners disabled and dying of black lung disease. What's worse, disease rates are on the rise, causing an increasing number of miners to turn to this corrupt system to help alleviate their suffering.
