Eastern Kentucky coal country is filled with people competing for nonexistent jobs, tied to the area by family and unable to sell their homes even if they want to leave. People like 50-year-old Frank Dixon, who was laid off right before Christmas from an Eastern Kentucky coal mine. While Dixon and thousands of others in the United States have lost their jobs, coal is booming in the rest of the world.
