When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 19, 2014 photo, unemployed coal miner Steven Fields, 49, walks through an abandoned coal mine near where he grew up in Verda, Ky. His last job was with his family’s T-shirt printing business, at $10 an hour. Despite lungs choked with coal dust, Fields said that he yearns to go back underground. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
