The mine shutdown makes sense. They shutdown entire airports just because Air Force One flies in - even if it is on the opposite side of a huge airport like Chicago O'Hare. If the mine was shutdown for security reasons, people would not be allowed to work anyway (so no pay), so they might as well go to the event.
Yup, especially if you want to force the workers to go to an event that you support.

I can only imagine the bleating and weeping and gnashing of teeth on this forum if an Obama supporter did something similar.
