Chilean miners struggle with long-term disability

Almost a year after 33 Chilean miners were rescued from being trapped , most of the men are still unemployed or on medical leave.

The Chilean men have coined the term, “Los 33,” and have found representation to protect their image as well as create future movie deals. Others decided they would sue the Chilean state due to sub par working conditions at the mine where they worked.

Long-term disability was only awarded to 14 of the men, who receive $470 a month from the government.

These miners are seen as heroes to most but concern is rising, because they are unable to hold a steady job or overcome their disabilities from the accident.
