WHAT IT SHOWS: There are several underground coal mines in Bulgaria that are still operational. Coals are being used to generate electricity in the power stations nearby the mine. The coals provide almost 100 of the national electricity demands of Bulgaria. Most mines are privatised and working conditions are hard. Workers descend up to 700 meter underground and it is dangerous as the safety regulations are not taken very seriously. Workers have wages between 200 to 400 euros per month. Most of them die young before 50 due to various lung diseases.
