Family of Dead Utah Miners Address Congress

The families of the six dead miners who were killed when the Crandall Canyon mine in central Utah collapsed back in August spoke before a congressional committee on Wednesday.

The company that operated the Crandall Canyon mine in central Utah valued "production over safety," said Cesar Sanchez, brother of deceased miner Manuel Sanchez. The families of the miners are furious and want justice for their loved ones who lost their lives in the Crandall Canyon mine.

And I don't blame them. But this is not surprising. When DOESN'T a company value production over safety? Maybe the families of these miners can make a chink in the way things are, but it will be like dropping a pebble in the grand canyon. We live in the age of greed.
