Review in progress. Others may also review. Suomi Finland 2009 (talk) 21:48, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Very nice article. Suggest possibly having more clear sections. Now it is 1 Importance of coal breaking
2 Use of breaker boys
3 Union activities
4 References
5 External links

Consider:

1 Importance of coal breaking
2 Use of breaker boys (mainly about job description)
3 Un-named section about public condemnation...
3 Union activities (minor rewrite or expansion or see if references say these activities helped end the line of work? Or maybe keep it?)

Although it is not customary to do so, if there is a request to do so, I could do minor editing and pass it as a GA. Suomi Finland 2009 (talk) 22:14, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Since there hasn't been editing on it and you say it's near GA status, you can make the tweaks yourself if it's all it needs. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 21:36, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

GA granted. Since I am rather new to creating GA (have done it) and reviewing it, others who disagree, please let me know if you disagree. I am open to learning. Suomi Finland 2009 (talk) 18:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
