When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 19, 2014 photo, unemployed coal miner Steven Fields, 49, stands in the bedroom of his home at dusk in Coxton, Ky. Fields was laid off from his coal mining job five years ago and plans to leave his family behind to look for work in Alabama. “It’s a hard pill to swallow when you’re laying at home and your wife’s supporting you, instead of you supporting your wife,” he says, huffing and coughing.
