That’s pretty typical of what’s happening in these Oil Patch areas. Tons of economic growth and a very small local population to take advantage of it.

I’ve heard of Tim Hortons in some parts of Alberta paying over $20/hr. for someone to pour coffee for oil workers.

A lot of the people from this area, (Eastern Wa. State) are working there, due to the high unemployment here.
