Just curious as to working in the mines in the Appalachians. Did the mines work multiple shifts or just one shift per day? I'm assuming they probably worked 6 days a week and 16 hour days back in the 1940-50 period. Anyone have any info? I haven't seen it mentioned in the several books I have on railroads and coal mines.
