Limbaugh on the Upper Big Branch mine disaster:
Was there no union responsibility for improving mine safety? Where was the union here? Where was the union? The union is generally holding these companies up demanding all kinds of safety. Why were these miners continuing to work in what apparently was an unsafe atmosphere?
The mine was not unionized
And Massey Energy has made it a matter of policy to kick unions out and keep unions out of their mines. They prefer to buy politicians and judges instead.
Had the mine been unionized, this disaster never would have happened.
That's because the mine would have gone out of business long ago.
