    Florida right in the middle. If it weren't for "Family Related Stress" being at #7 (whatever that is) - we would be even lower.

    The top six of Work related stress;

    Alaska
    Wyoming
    Louisiana
    Mississippi
    Texas
    North Dakota

    These are all states that have been impacted by the refusal from the federal government to drill. These were all big oil, LPG states four years ago.

    "These are all states that have been impacted by the refusal from the federal government to drill. These were all big oil, LPG states four years ago." -olde dude

    So... refusal to allow more drilling is what has caused more workplace stress out than in all the other states?

    That's really all it took? Boy, those states must be greater hell holes to work in than I thought.

    olde dude, do you know of any stats showing that there has been a shitload of layoffs in the fossil fuel industry in those states in recent years? And that employees are terrified (hence the stress) of losing their jobs?

    I mean because otherwise, how is a limit on drilling affecting the stress levels of employees in that industry?

    Sounds like it's time for your vraylar dose evaluation, because it's not near enough. I'm just going to put this paragraph in and cite below. They are in order.

    The oil and gas industry has been laying off workers at an unprecedented pace (1,2,3,4). The layoffs are due to a pandemic that crashed energy prices and raised doubts about the future of fossil fuels(1). A staggering 107,000 jobs vanished from the US oil, gas and chemicals industry between March and August 2020 (1,4). The 20 biggest U.S. fossil fuel firms cut nearly 15,000 jobs in 2021(2). Apache, Continental Resources, Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Occidental Petroleum, and Schlumberger are among the companies that have laid off workers(3).

    To continue since pedojoe has been in power.

    Biden administration report shows massive fossil fuel industry job losses
    The Biden administration published its annual U.S. Energy and Employment Report (USEER) Tuesday, showing large fossil fuel industry job losses.

    The Department of Energy (DOE) report found that the fuels technology sector experienced job losses totaling 29,271 jobs in 2021, a 3.1% year-over-year decline, with the majority coming in the fossil fuel industry. Onshore and offshore petroleum companies shed 31,593 jobs, a 6.4% decline, the coal industry lost 7,125 jobs, down 11.8% year-over-year, and fossil fuel extraction jobs declined by 12%.

    Oil And Gas Exploration Suffers Decline In 2022
    The Biden administration is finding itself between a rock and a hard place as its commitment to its climate agenda meets a reluctant oil industry and backlash from OPEC over the proposed Russian oil price cap. Around the globe and in the U.S., 2022 has been a dismal year for the opening up of new oil and gas project, further complicating plans to wean the world off the Russian oil supply it has grown so accustomed to. After the announcement of significant production cuts by OPEC last week, the price of a barrel of WTI crude rose again to a high of $92.64 on Friday—the priciest since August.

    od: But shouldn't reduced oil drilling affect Democratic controlled states too, like California?


  8. by oldedude on August 8, 2023 7:16 pm
    Maybe? but these are states that depend on that money and employment for their state's employment stats. And which pull them up significantly when those people are working. So "per capita," which according to curt is the "only" way to get true stats, it hits CA far less than LA, or any of the other states that rely on that income to their numbers.

    So "just" the Keystone XL background... The Keystone XL pipeline is a hotly contested multi-national construction project. If built, the underground pipeline would stretch across over 1,000 miles of Canada and the United States, carrying oil from the remote oil fields of Alberta, Canada, to existing pipelines that reach down to the Gulf of Mexico.

    There is already a Keystone pipeline, and the Keystone XL is set to be an additional larger pipeline that runs parallel to the existing one in some places. Proponents of the Keystone XL pipeline say that it will bring an economic boost; as proposed, the effect of getting more North American oil to the more well-established refineries in the Gulf of Mexico would mean that surrounding nations would need to import less oil from the Middle East. Many predict that this change would lead to cheaper oil and gas costs for the average consumer in North America.


    President Joe Biden spent his first day in the White House signing a spate of executive orders aimed at undoing the policies of the Trump administration. One of them sparked outrage on Facebook over its effect on American jobs.

    On Jan. 20, Biden signed an order that revoked the permit for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. In a Facebook post published the same day, one user said the move would cost thousands of jobs.

    TC Energy Corp., the Canadian company that owns the Keystone XL pipeline with the Alberta government, has said more than 1,000 people are out of work because of Biden’s executive order. The 11,000 and $2 billion figures cited in the Facebook post are estimates published by the company, but most of the jobs would be temporary.


    I wanted to lay out both sides to y'all. Question. Would it be better to be paid $45/hour with benefits to work temp (union) or would it be better to sponge off the gov'mt fo' 1/4th the pay w/ZERO benefits?

    These jobs are welders, pipefitters, etc that are hourly employees. In the US in this area (North Dakota, the Dakota Nations), they are typically indigenous workers who's job skills depend on "contracts."
    They make good money, albeit they are hourly. So if they're not working, they're not paid.

    Ever been to Houston? If there's any place that looks like hell on earth? yep... Houston.

    I have. And if I weren't an Elitist prig, I might think the same way.

    There are many Blue states where there's oil drilling and fracking, od (see link), yet they aren't showing up on the list of the most stressed states. I think that's because issues like lack of access to healthcare affect considerably more people than cutting back on oil drilling.
