I hate to continue to argue about this and hate that it's coming off as a claim. I do not work at the Oilsands or in fort macmurray and never have. I do not work for an oil company in any manner. However the oilsands have inflated the wages for all industrial trades people in western Canada. The company I work for the average electricians salary I is about 97k plus bonuses, o.t. etc. You are right the salary may not be the same throughout the US and eastern Canada. I am also guessing the guy who started this, being from saskatchewan, proabably works in a Uranium mine.
Back to the topic at hand. I hadn't even thought of checking FB when hirring people, maybe I should. I'll have to check company policy and see if it's OK.
