National Miners Day
They have one of the most difficult and dangerous jobs you can imagine.




National Today Wednesday December 6 2023 * National Miners Day * Dec_610





Despite federal efforts to ensure safe working conditions for miners, they have one of the most difficult and dangerous jobs you can imagine. To recognize their efforts, Congress has declared December 6 National Miners Day. Why? Our entire economy depends on them. On this holiday, we should all take a moment to think about the many ways that miners play a role in our daily lives. Mined materials contribute to things like roads, houses, cars and computers. We wouldn’t be able to get much done without their hard work.






HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL MINERS DAY


[list="holiday-list holiday-list-celebrate"][*]

Learn about miners and what they do


The Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration develops videos and blog posts to shine light on this occupation. Discover all that miners accomplish.


[*]

Visit a local mine if you can


Whether it's quartz in Massachusetts or gold in California, find out what miners are working on in your state. You may be surprised!


[*]

Take a look around you


Think about all of the daily luxuries we have that depend on mining. From our cell phones, to the pots and pans we cook with, so much depends on America's miners.

WHY NATIONAL MINERS DAY IS IMPORTANT


[list="holiday-list holiday-list-loveit"][*]

Miners are important in our lives


Miners extract our natural resources — literally making it possible for us to enjoy the comforts of modern life. They have a challenging job, so let's take some time to think about all they do.


[*]

Mining's vital to the U.S. economy


America's one of the world’s largest producers (and consumers) of mineral products. For example, the U.S. produces huge quantities of coal, iron ore, copper, phosphate rock, and zinc. The economic opportunities and wealth generated by mining are substantial.


[*]

Miners deal with daily hazards


It's not easy! Potential dangers for coal miners include suffocation, gas poisoning, roof collapse, rock burst, and gas explosions.
