It's been more than three weeks since Jeff Willig got a call from his buddy Chris Sexton asking if he wanted to go stand in front of a moving train loaded with coal.

More than 1,100 miners in Kentucky, Wyoming, West Virginia and Virginia lost their jobs with no warning.

They didn't get paid for their last week of work, and their paycheques from the previous two weeks bounced.

Willig, Sexton, Blake Watts, and Chris and Dalton Lewis stood on the tracks on the evening of June 29 and blocked the train.

Then the miners set up camp nearby on the tracks to make sure it couldn't come through again.

Jeff Willig was among the original five miners who blocked a train from leaving the Black Mountain mine in Kentucky.

Macron whisked the US president away for an impromptu meal for two on an oceanfront terrace at the Hotel du Palais.

Trump initially appeared frosty but later called it “the best meeting we have yet had”. »

'Like you've been fired from your job': YouTubers have lost thousands of dollars after their channels were mistakenly demonetized for months

Authored by

Three YouTubers who were mistakenly demonetized told Insider that when they were demonetized, they were given no options for immediate appeal and no options to recover lost profits — which can sometimes amount to thousands of dollars.

But Sandt wasn't dodging YouTube's rules or terms of service — he, along with others, was mistakenly demonetized for weeks with no option to recover lost profits.

The platform still kept his videos publicly listed on the site, despite the content regulations it claimed Sandt had violated. »
