The recent US Oil boom is good news regarding jobs, economic impact, and energy independence. But with the Boom comes some complex issues.

The North Dakota oil boom is unique in the fact that there is not nearly enough housing for all the workers needed to drill for and produce the oil. Some companies provide 'man-camps' that house workers in dormitory style manufactured residences. Most employers take the cost of the man-camp directly from workers' paychecks. Other employers expect workers to find their own housing, which can be frustrating and extremely expensive.

Links Logistics handles the housing crisis for our employees by treating the oil field job as if it were an Over-The-Road job. Trucks have large sleeper cabs and Drivers use the truck as their home working a 40 day on, 10 day off/home schedule. No housing cost for employees, and Drivers are paid a guarantee salary for all 50 of these scheduled days -- this includes pay for home time.
