Today, December 6th, is National Miners Day in America.


Dig this -- our entire economy depends on them.


Mined materials are essential for so much of the stuff we take for granted like roads, buildings, cars, computers, and much of our digital technology.


Despite federal efforts to ensure safe working conditions for miners, they have one of the most difficult and dangerous jobs in America. And so to recognize their efforts, Congress has declared this, December 6th, National Miners Day.


There are 834,721 people employed in the Mining industry in the US as of 2022.


The value of coal, metals and industrial minerals mined in the United States is in excess of $150 billion a year.
