The coal industry provides much more than just affordable electricity, it provides jobs for hard working Americans across the country.
The industry alone provides over half a million American jobs, and one in every five rail jobs depend on coal. Families, communities and the nation’s economy depend on the reliability and affordability of coal’s steady, low costs during our country’s economic recovery.
Since coal is the prime source for our nation’s electricity, it’s time to embrace coal as the essential resource that keeps our economy functioning. Families and small businesses cannot afford to see their bills increase or livelihood vanish.
