In this Oct. 18, 2014 photo, a coal miner’s hard hat and lamp sit in the window of a downtown pawn shop in Harlan, Ky. Mine employment in Kentucky is at its lowest levels since the Great Depression. As recently as the late 1970s, there were more than 350 mines operating at any given time in Harlan County. Today, it’s around 40. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
