Oil Workers Don’t Do It For The Money, They Do It Because They Love Pumping Sludge

Fort McMurray – “None of us are here for the money,” said Enbridge employee, Mike Scavel, “There’s just no other feeling like pumping sludge out of the ground.” Oil workers are often misconstrued as working long hours for a large paycheck, but Mike says that’s just not true, “When I was a kid I used my moms vacuum to try and suck oil out of my sandbox (laughs). I’ve always been fascinated with moving substances from below the ground to the surface. The money is just a bonus.” Competition is high, however, as many oil patch jobs have been cut recently. If the oil trade doesn’t work out, Mike says he can always go back to being a waiter like all the other people waiting for their big break.
