Coal miner killed at mine owned by West Virginia governor - World Socialist Web Site

Monday, March 27, 2017

Matthews is the third coal miner killed this year in the US and the second in West Virginia. His death comes on the heels of 54-year-old coal truck driver Franklin L. Vannoy at Coronado Coal’s Elk Lick Tipple in Logan County, West Virginia, in early February. Vannoy jumped from a dump truck he was operating as it overturned on him; he died from his injuries seven days later at CMAC General Hospital in Charleston. In late January, 42-year-old Kentucky coal miner Ray Hatfield, Jr was killed after becoming entangled in a moving belt near which he was shoveling at R&C Coal LLC’s Mine No. 2 near Pikeville, Kentucky.All three fatalities occurred at small operations, historically the most dangerous and exploitative. Vannoy was a contractor and one of just 13 employees at the Elk Lick Tipple while Hatfield was one of nine miners employed by R&C.Matthews was one of only five workers employed at the Bishop Preparation Plant and one of only three miners working at the time of the accident, which left him working alone near dangerous operating equipment. It is unclear if Matthews died from the fall itself or how long he lay in the coal bin before being found.As the World Socialist Web Sitewrote following Justice’s inauguration, “The election of Justice has many parallels with the victory of Republican Donald Trump in the presidential election. As in the national election, the super-rich are seizing control of the machinery of government in West Virginia directly, while seeking to divert the growing anger of workers toward the political establishment in an extremely right-wing direction.”Like Trump, Justice ran as a businessman and political outsider promising to bring back coal jobs decimated over recent years by the global economic crisis. However, the plans of both Trump and Justice to revive the coal industry consist of gutting occupational health and safety standards and eliminating environmental regulations. In his inaugural address, Justice claimed to be “friends with the Trump family” and pledged after receiving a congratulatory phone call from Trump, “I will work closely with the President-elect and his administration on clean coal technology, rolling back job-killing [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency] regulations on coal, and growing West Virginia’s other job opportunities.”Such a program has nothing to do with protecting coal-mining jobs, raising living standards, or addressing the deep poverty and growing social crisis throughout Appalachia. Rather it portends a vast escalation of the assault on the coal miners and the working class of the region. To the extent that the coal industry experiences any revival under such policies, it will be based upon the super-exploitation of coal miners and the reopening of small and dangerous mines.For its part, the Republican-controlled state legislature has introduced legislation which would eliminate the mandated four quarterly state

Among them is “Aryanna’s Law,” which requires childcare centers to disclose health and safety violations.Unlike other state lawmakers, he skipped the routine of flying commercially, instead piloting his own private plane. At one point, Benoit was one of just two licensed pilots in the Legislature. Benoit, who earned his pilot’s license through flying lessons at Rubidoux’s Flabob Airport in the 1970s, often gave rides to other lawmakers.He received legislator of the year honors from the California School Boards Association, the School Transportation Coalition, the California Narcotics Officers’ Association and the Chief Probation Officers of California.In 2009, then-Supervisor Roy Wilson stepped down unexpectedly, citing his declining health. Before he passed away that August, Wilson asked his fellow supervisors to endorse Benoit as his replacement.RELATED: Gov. Brown must pick a new Riverside County supervisor to fill the John Benoit vacancyIn November 2009, then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Benoit to serve the remainder of Wilson's term. "As an experienced elected official and former public safety officer, John J. Benoit has a proven history of dedicated public service and is absolutely the best person to fill this important position," Schwarzenegger said at the time.Benoit was interested in becoming supervisor because he felt he could accomplish more at the local level. “It is just a fascinating position,” he said in 2011.
