I have worked in the oilfield a long time and have been all over the country. This is common when this industry is introduced to a new area. The locals feel exploited and taken advantage of. The truth of the matter is people employed in this industry work around dangerous equipment daily. The oilfield has made huge industry changes over the years to avoid accidents and injuries in the field, hiring someone who can't pass a drug screen or background check puts everyone's lives in jeapordy on a daily basis. Think about it, would you want your child's life in the hands of an ex con that is doped up all the time? It will take time forthe community to adjust to the changes and I can honestly say the companies are tryin to get the best people in the right positions for everyone's well being.

Yea man my family works out there and I'm a local. I don't want some idiot getting my family hurt or killed. I wonder if these sign waving whiners ever even applied for a job? They all have families too! Maybe instead of whining and demanding a job you should apply for one and quit asking for something you didn't earn.
