Two things have made me re-think labor problems:
- The increasing problem with Opioids
- The fracking business taking off again
- A quick look at the above map tells you the problem. How can quality work be performed in light of this problem?
- Fracking is taking off again – and this time it demands even more transportation resources. Consider a well that was fracked recently with 50.2 MM lbs of sand…. that is about 1000 truckloads or 250 rail cars (two trains) folks. There was a time when 5 MM lbs of sand was considered a lot. Think of the stress on the infrastructure and driver-labor force.
