For everything…These towns don’t want to invest in something that will leave them high and dry with a big bill once the boom busts…..However I do have a feeling this wont have a big bust like the 80’s boom did because it doesn’t look like there will be any surplus put into the market to bring the prices down. This might be a long haul and these costs need to be taken care of now before things go completely wild.
Even if this does go long and they are able to put out a call for trainees from other parts of the country……How many will stick around after their first sub zero call?

Like they should have paid for the US being it’s body guard in Iraq. These republican corporations don’t care if firemen are getting burned out-never will. Time to man up and provide their own.

The oil companies pay plenty of taxes, upon taxes.
When are the slackers collecting a government check and subsidy going to contribute anything?
