You make some very good points!
Students in med school also accumulate a lot of loans they have to pay back after they start practice. Their loans are way more than a coal miner will ever have to pay back.
In these days, it is going to take a lot of loving and caring people to become docs to take care of all of us and also put up with all the gov't garbage. God bless all docs and future docs!
We are not going to have enough good ones to take care of all of us coal miners!
