I worked on Keystone from 2010-2013 & for Hess for a while. Before that I was in the Appalachian mines. We knew these jobs were disappearing a long time ago. I just hate when people tell us who were actually working in the industry our experience. We're grown ass men & women. We don't need no sympathy. I've been going to school part time for years to prepare for an evolving economy.
I think a lot of us are just tired being a pawn to be used by the Republican Party every time they get their panties in a wad, like us actually working americans are such weak victims & can't handle even handle finding another job. Us tradesmen/women aren't just uneducated idiots who can't learn how to do something else.
