Article calls shale "a job creation machine"

By Jim Mackinnon Published: August 24, 2012

People are willing to travel a long distance to seek shale-related work..

Fuel Fix has this story out of San Antonio on the Eagle Ford Shale:

"At a job fair Thursday hosted mostly by energy companies, Rich Puliselich, a truck driver from Southern California, was hoping to land an entry-level job with a drilling company.

"Puliselich has been in San Antonio for a week with his wife and 5-year-old son.

"'We like it here,” he said. “I’m going to relocate and make a big move.'

"The job fair lured about 800 job seekers, including military veterans, recent college graduates and some currently employed folks who, like Puliselich, want to get in on the ground floor of what could be a booming field for years to come."
