    The Modern American Workplace - By Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    The Labor Department is seeking a $40,000 fine against the mine and its owners for each of the cases where mineowners discriminated against workers who were exercising their health and safety rights. But the owners protest.
    [Company owner Stanley] Osborne, 61, who like [superintendent Simon] Ratliff is representing himself at the hearing, said safety was the top priority.

    Osborne also said that he fired only one of the miners, Wendell McClain, for using profanity after the coal-scooper incident involving Damron.

    Using profanity? I'm sure that's unheard of in a coal mine, especially after a near-death experience.
