Summary: The episode then shifts to an interview with a retired miner, John Huddleston. Scott and Huddleston discuss the lack of miner’s pensions. Huddleston also comments on the lack of unions when he began his mining career. Huddleston’s wife Helen tells about her worries as a coal miner’s wife, especially during strikes and labor disputes. John says that he probably would still work in the mines if he could do it all over again, since he did not have the education required to obtain a better job.
