Chilean Miners Struggle One Year Later

This article is more than 10 years old.

One year after 33 Chilean miners were miraculously rescued, nearly half the men remain unemployed and few have been able to cash-in on their fame. According to the Associated Press, ""Los 33" have filed negligence lawsuits demanding $10 million from the bankrupt mine's owners and $17 million from the government for failing to enforce safety regulations, but years remain before any payout."
