Walker Machinery Co. Joins STAND UP FOR AMERICAN JOBS Rally
Belle, WV – The assault on the coal industry continues, and with last month’s E.P.A. announcement that literally stops the construction of any new coal-fired power plants, a statement must be made. To show the solidarity of our people and the intense concern for their jobs, their families and their way of life, a statement was made Tuesday, October 29 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., with a “Stand Up for American Energy Jobs” Rally.
Walker Machinery rented a bus to take Logan Coal Vendors, customers and other Friends of Coal to have their voices heard.
“This administration’s decisions have negatively impacted the livelihoods of the many Appalachians who work directly and indirectly in the coal industry,” said Walker Executive Vice President Tim McLean. “We all stand to lose if we cannot change the path of the E.P.A.”
