Pike County miner protest ends, company issues paychecks
The three-day protest of Kentucky coal miners has come to an end Wednesday, this coming after miners blocked a railroad track over unpaid wages.
One trying to get coal cars across the rails, and another pushing for paychecks.
They said they worked for weeks, waiting for a check that never came.
According to WYMT, the company agreed to issue checks early on Wednesday evening. Miners waited until funds were deposited in their bank accounts, then began to pack up.
