Shanxi Coal Mine Bosses, Extravagant Lifestyles

chinaSMACK translates netizens’ reactions to news that plans to reorganize the mining industry, potentially eliminating the corrupt and indulgent lifestyles of many mine bosses:

Speaking of Shanxi coal bosses, people cannot help but think of their throwing money around, being extremely wealthy, driving Hummers, buying groups of buildings/houses, keeping mistresses…as “coal boss” and “money” has seemingly become synonymous.

An even more important reason they are in the public eye like this, aside from having money, are coal mine accidents, their short-sightedness and greed having also brought to society many negative effects, and causing the title of “coal boss” to be associated with heartless and bloody. “Seeking personal wealth, ignoring safety” because their most negative image.

Now that coal bosses will soon exit history’s stage, if only coal mine accidents can also never reappear.
