When one needs to work they 're not necessarily desperate except for work. Only those that haven't been anywhere outside of CC would be surprised. That only goes to show that some women will do what many men won't dare do-- work!

I know woman that work in the rigs and theres nothing wrong with that. If they can handle the pressure and job duties more power to them. If a man don't want the job some women do. Yes awesome there is alot of oilfield work and they should hire. I know women that do that kind of work and they are good at it.

Its really hard work but the companies do not discriminate against a persons sex. With the influx of jobs coming into the region women should be able to find work in a range of areas. They are less likely to hire you if you have no field experience but I think you should contact the workforce commission to inquire about whats availabe.

Most women are not physically able to do this work. You will find an exception once in awhile. If you are professional and don't expect the rest of the crew to pick up any slack for you.
Women are their own worst enemies. There have been so many skanky women out in the patch that now they are all stereotyped this way.

Throughout history women have handle a man's job with no problem.
If they can serve our country overseas, they sure can work in the oil rigs.

well if you weld and dont mind getting screwed making $50 while all the guys running the crews charge $75. Apparently no one knows that the OIl Companys pay $75 an hour.

I agree I didn't say women couldn't work on oil rigs. I said most are not physically able.

Men and women do not have to meet the same standard in basic training. Women are given more time to complete runs in physical training (PT) tests and have to less in the area of pushups and situps. Is that fair?

Guys on a rig might pick up slack for a women crew member for a hitch or so, but it's back breaking work and they will soon get tired of it. No matter what anyone thinks or says it takes a certain kind of woman to do either of these jobs and good for them. I don't agree that they be treated any differently then men. Women want equal rights then that's what you should get.

I knew a few women who worked on a lease crew and pulled their own weight. Some guys will hate the fact that a woman is doing a "mans job". LOL, maybe this woman wants to earn a mans wages and make life better for herself. The company I work for has hired some young "guys" and starts them off at anywhere from $20 to 30.00 an hour. We have to go out to field in the middle of the night ot fix any problems which may occur. You are out in the middle of nowhere, in the dark with who knows who running around out there. Sometimes the closest help is 20 to 30 minutes away from you and that's if the know where you are. It's not for everyone. But if it was easy everybody would do it. I say go for it. There are many major companies in town and they are more willing to hire women. Take care and be safe!!!
