UMWA editorial cartoon

Classification: Query
Does anyone have a copy of an old United Mine Worker Journal editorial illustrating the point that coal operators valued mules over miners? I have searched online and couldn’t find one. Currently my civil service pension is dangerously underfunded because Kentucky legislators failed for 14 of the past 21 put in the full employer contribution. The workers, on the other hand, had contributions and taxes taken out of each and every paycheck. The reason I want an old UMWA cartoon – there is a lot of talk in Kentucky about protecting the horse industry. Talk about protecting retired state workers – not so much. You can answer here or by e-mailing wvamemories-facebook(at)
