The West Virginia Democratic Party released the following statement today on National Miners Day:

We are forever indebted to the coal miners in West Virginia for risking their lives day after day to build our state. The foundation of West Virginia’s values are represented in our coal miners. Miners have fought for many years to strengthen workplace safety, fair working environments, good pay, and benefits for not only miners but all workers in West Virginia. The value of West Virginia’s coal miners and their families cannot be expressed in words, but I want them to know that we will continue to stand with them arm in arm to fight for safe working conditions, and to ensure that they are paid good wages and receive what they are owed. Today on National Miners Day we thank them.”
