  • Just about anyone in Texas for long knows someone in O&G. And that pool of employees shrinks or grows with the boom/bust of the industry. These days most of the hiring is at both ends of the employee ladder. Engineers and truck drivers. The roughnecks just pack up their RV and move to a different hot spot as another opportunity come along. Or they are forced to get a job outside O...

  • A number of years back, before the price of natural gas took a dive, it was reported that an Alcoa plant in West Texas furloughed all non-essential employees, they were still paid though and received their full benefits. It turns out that the retail price of electricity on the west coast was so high that Alcoa was buying the maximum amount of electricity they were contractually...
