Welcome to the boom town

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Welcome to the boom town

Postby Henry Vilas » Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:04 am

Because of the oil boom in North Dakota, their unemployment is the lowest in the country. Jobs that don't pay much cannot be filled. Menard's has a solution.

Menard to fly Wis. workers in to staff ND store

Home improvement retailer Menard Inc. plans to hire 50 workers from its headquarters city in Wisconsin and fly them weekly to staff its store in Minot, N.D.
...
Menard said jetting in employees for weeklong stints and housing them in hotels is likely to be a permanent solution for that store's staffing shortage.


Will Walker counts them as Wisconsin jobs created under his administration?

Is there anything that has happened or will happen that you don't or won't try to throw mud on Walker for? We get it. You hate Walker. Point it out another time or two hundred. BORRRRRING. Your hard-on for Walker is so big it's slowing the blood flow to your head and fingers -"Will Walker counts them" WTF, Henry.

OK, so post your comments about Walker and the the quarter million jobs he promised here. I will respond to what you write. Let's see if you can talk about the topic, rather than about me.

Are you related to Ned?

The title of this thread is about a boom town, Minot N.D. Wisconsin workers will be commuting to there. Governor Walker might counts them as jobs created while he is in charge. I think he can.

Since you asked me, I'll ask you. Are you related to Ned?

P.S. You don't really have to respond about your Governor if you don't have anything nice to say at all. We've heard it already.

When my Sister was in the Air Force, and Minot was known only as a cold war B-52 base positioned for flights over the pole to bomb the Soviet Union, she told me that airmen would contemplate being stationed in Minot with the following poem: "Why not Minot? The Freezin's the Reason."

This is the nicest thing I can think of to say: It has not been proven beyond a doubt that Walker is not a carbon-based life form.
