Jobs, jobs, jobs. If you, or someone you know, needs a good job, have them look at the oil patch. Places like Midland/Odessa in Texas, the Eagle Ford near San Antonio, or Williston, North Dakota. There are lots of ways to make good money. Get a CDL and drive a truck. You can make upwards of $75-grand or more.
Start your own business like Juan Carlos Torres did in Sidney, Montana, where he now feeds oil workers from his taco truck. Or visit the many operators who are still pressing on, in spite of lower prices.
Supervisors of drilling rigs can make more than many doctors. In spite of the nay-sayers, it’s opportunities like this that are golden. Far better than the 22-percent unemployment found in many non-fracking parts of the country.
