I’m often asked…how can I find a job in the oil boom? It’s really pretty easy. Go to where the boom is!
Pennsylvania, West Virginia & Ohio on the east coast. North Dakota, Texas or Colorado in the Midwest. And I’ll tell you where it’s NOT: New York or California. Check out McDonalds in Williston, North Dakota. They’re paying $15 per hour PLUS a signing bonus of several hundred dollars.
Places like Midland Texas can’t find enough workers to fill almost any position. A CDL and a stop at almost any trucking company will have you making a great wage driving materials to and from rigs. Yet people will rally in the streets against the very thing that is bringing such abundance and independence to so many hard-working Americans.
