VII Interactive. Lecture: Hard.Land – A Journey Through the US Rust Belt
USA West Virginia Mullans. 32 miners work in the coal mine of Kevin Calloway (64 years old) - not on the picture - in 8 hour shifts. The working condition for coal miners is hard, they are breathing in dust and crawling in the low tunnels, many end up on disability. "Working in the coal mine is a life style. If you manage, you earn good money. But ufortunately, a lot of the mines has closed, so there is a huge lack of jobs in the area", says owner Kevin Calloway. The mine closed down some few months later.
