But can you upskill all of them? A look at what’s going on around the coal mining communities paints a different picture. Even with subsidies, and smart entrepreneurs trying to teach coding, etc. it’s a minority of former miners that are willing to engage in the upskilling. My feeling is that it’s more about fighting human nature to change than the actual upskilling.
