Description: 
Striking miners, congregate in a make-shift hut, discussing strike and union issues. They recall that boys as young as ten worked in the mine, if they had someone to train them, usually their father or uncle. Before the union was established, miners did not get paid for mine preparation work and families received nothing when a miner died in the mine. They talk about how they survived during the Depression. Even now, miners have ranches, farms and orchards to make ends meet. Multiple conversations go on about working for many companies, Medicare, and enduring the strike. Then the video has street scenes of Paonia and the last 2 1/2 minutes shots of the Bowie Mine.
