National Miners Day

National Miners’ Day is celebrated on December 6th in America. This is an important holiday for those who spend half their lives underground. People with other professions cannot even imagine what hellish work is done by miners every day! We can support everyone involved in the case today.


At all times, the specialty has had a magical effect on people … The underworld hides secrets! The image of a miner traditionally has not changed over the years: a tired man in soot and a special suit. Type in the search engine the name of the profession and you will see his photos. In fact, now their work is a little easier: some processes are mechanized, which makes the work easier. However, manual work is enough, so employers lure people with high wages and benefits.

Miners are considered fearless people. Not only men, but also women enter the sphere. They descend along a vertical shaft, which is like an elevator, and follow to their destination. It can be 7 km away! Due to difficult conditions, people have learned to support their neighbor, because teamwork is safe and effective.
