When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 18, 2014 photo, Scottie Sizemore sits at the kitchen table as his wife Madonna holds their daughter Anastyn, 10 mo, at their home in Harlan, Ky. After Sizemore’s company announced they were slashing salaries 7 and a half percent and not long after that another 7 percent cut was coming, he decided to leave the mountains his family has called home for at least four generations and take a job coal mining in Western Kentucky. Since commuting home on weekends, Sizemore is hoping to pack up their home in Harlan and have the family back under one roof out west. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
