By Michael Ruppert,CNNMoneyCNNMoney,USATODAYMiningIndustryRecruitersMining IndustrySalariesMining industry employees,including miners,are leaving the mining industry in droves.
But how much money is it really making?
The mining industry employs 1.4 million people in the US and Canada.
The mining industry is worth an estimated $5 trillion.
But in 2017, just under half of that amount — $4 trillion — went to the miners.
The rest went to their families and the corporations that run the mines.
And the biggest share of that $4 billion went to mining companies themselves.
What we are seeing is the first signs of a real change in the mining economy.
The US economy was once a mining powerhouse.
It produced a lot of high-paying jobs and lots of good pay for people in mining jobs.
Then it went into a deep downturn.
But it has been recovering quickly since then.
The jobs have been coming back.
But the mining sector has been shrinking.
Mining companies are having trouble filling positions that are available.
The companies are being squeezed by higher interest rates, lower revenues and the slowing economy.
What’s driving this trend is the shrinking revenue of mining companies.
That has been the trend since 2008.
Mining industry employees and miners make up a larger share of mining workforce than ever before.
In fact, the US is now home to 2.2 million mining employees and 2.3 million mining companies, according to a report from the US Department of Labor.
But how much is the mining company making?
This is a tough question to answer because the mining companies pay very little.
In 2018, the mining industries biggest shareholders were mining companies like Peabody Energy and Devon Energy, both of which have about $1.2 trillion in assets.
The next biggest shareholder is Rio Tinto, which has $3.6 trillion in total assets.
Mining corporations like Rio and Peabys profits have largely gone to themselves.
In 2017, mining companies paid $2.5 billion to their employees.
The paychecks are a lot higher for the average miner than it is for their families.
So what does that mean for the mining workforce?
According to a recent study by the National Mining Association, mining jobs have grown at a slower rate than the workforce overall.
Mining workers have grown about 2.8% a year over the last two decades.
But they are still just over 1.6% of the US workforce.
The average worker is still just 13.5 years old.
And even with those increases, the overall job growth has slowed, which means the job market is getting tougher for mining companies to fill.
But there is one bright spot in the current economic downturn.
The miners are making more money now than ever.
In 2020, the average earnings for miners were $42,000, up from $31,000 in 2017.
The median income for mining workers was $41,000 last year, up 6% from $40,000 two years ago.
The US government and mining companies have been trying to convince the public that mining is a good thing.
But when we look at the numbers, it is a lot harder to sell the message.
The numbers tell a very different story.
The mining sector, which employs about one-fifth of all mining workers, is shrinking, even as the jobs are being created.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs in the American mining sector declined by about 2% in the first quarter of 2018, while the number in the United States as a whole fell by more than 6%.
In 2020 alone, the U.S. economy lost 1.3% of its mining jobs, while in Canada it lost 2.7%.
In the United Kingdom, mining workers are the third-largest group of people in their communities, behind those in the manufacturing sector and healthcare workers.
In Canada, they are the fourth-largest, behind doctors and nurses.
Mining jobs are shrinking, but they are not disappearing.
That’s because the industry is still expanding, thanks in large part to higher energy prices and increased production.
The industry is getting more profitable every year.
That means there is more money to go around.
In the United Nations Economic Commission for Western Asia, the United Arab Emirates and China, there are currently more than 30 million mining jobs and over 5 million in manufacturing.
The government has tried to tell people that the mining jobs are good, and that they should stay in the industry.
But even the companies that are leaving don’t seem to be convinced by this.
The Mining Association of America, which represents the mining interests, issued a statement in January saying it was “appalled” by the mining downturn and that “mining industry leaders have been pushing hard for many years for the industry to be profitable again.”
It said, “We are not surprised that miners are leaving.”
The industry has also been trying hard to convince people that
