A recent college survey stated that more and more American students have found work up North in the oil industry. While Canadian students tend to work near their school, American have no problem flying up North for the starting salary of $20.00 CDN per hour. We asked why? The main reason was given to us was the American school year is a bit shorter than the Canadian. The Americans are out there first trying to find high paying jobs.
Canada needs the workers.
Since the Canadian population is only 35 million compared to the American population of 300 million, there are more US students trying to find work. Texas oil industry is down, but the Alberta industry is growing. This explains why so many students are going up North. If your a Canadian student and are complaining there is no work for students, I don’t believe it.
