Why We Vote with Coal: Jobs

Posted by ACCCE at 10:00 am, November 02, 2012

This election, jobs have been a major issue.  Jobs created, jobs lost, and most importantly jobs needed to get the economy back on track. The coal-based electricity industry alone provides over half a million American jobs, and 1 in 5 rail jobs depend on coal. These numbers would continue to grow if not for the EPA’s aggressive war on coal. Sign our petition and tell candidates to support American jobs.

This week alone, companies have taken a major hit from EPA’s overbearing regulations, forcing more mines to close and putting hundreds out of work.

This is not only unnecessary, but extremely troubling during these though economic times.  Families, communities, and the nation’s economy depend on these jobs.  So why does the EPA continue with its goal to undermine the industry, and more importantly, why has the current administration allowed this trend to continue?

Vote with coal this election! Sign up to tell the candidates that Coal = Jobs.
