Local Construction Companies Eager to Snap up Oil Field Workers
Unemployment may be very short lived for South Texans who are losing their jobs in the Eagle Ford oil field due to the fall in global oil prices, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
As soon as they walk out of the oil patch with that pink slip in their hands, oilfield workers are being offered jobs in the booming San Antonio and Texas construction industry.
“Every day it seems there is an announcement about layoffs in the oil and gas industries,” Doug McMurray, Executive Vice President of the Associated General Contractors of San Antonio told News Radio 1200 WOAI. “We would simply like to extend job offers to those who have been newly laid off.”
