In Silesia, coal mining is a difficult and dangerous job. Many
coal miners sicken before their time with work related disorders. Mining also

The workers of the coal mines in Silesia should be as safe as possible for the workers, but the companies that own the mines are doing a pretty good job right now. The coal mines are a good source of income for the workers and the owners of the mines, and at the same time the government gets a good amount of taxes from the mines.
