Unsafe act.!! (part 5) - coal miners

Look at this miner, he is carrying at least 40 kg of coal.  He has to walk up a narrow shaft underground, walk a kilometer to a weight station.  The more he carries, the more he gets paid.  How much?  Around $0.20 a trip.  From an occupational health perspective, he will develop a "black lungs" disease very soon.
