They will be highly trained, skilled and tough individuals working far away from families for a long periods of time in extremly dangerous environment, locked together in confined space for most of the time. I don't think "space miners" are going to settle in space permanently, they will more likely be working on several months or years long contracts with some mining company and then return home to spend money they earned.

So esentially, they will be like present day oil rig workers.
