Coal provides the economic foundation for millions of Americans across the country – whether it’s through employment or low energy prices. When times are tough, it doesn’t make sense to add regulations that cause jobs to be lost and energy prices to increase for companies and working families. Tell candidates: we need American jobs.
The coal-based electricity industry provides more than 550,000 jobs to America: it gives peace-of-mind to small businesses that are struggling and high tech job opportunities for future graduates. Americans need to continue to take advantage of this affordable resource so we can to pull out of these hard economic times.
The choices that we make now directly affect Americans. Keep in mind that coal is the abundant, affordable resource that powers America – vote with coal on November 6.
