They called over 300 hands back, and more than 200 wouldn't come. They are trying to get crews to bring more out.

Pattersons first call out to 160 guys got 22 to come back. Gonna be a huge shortage of hands if it's picks up steam very quick. Have heard the same for another drilling company

Well, I really can't blame them if they have found another job. One hand got called back but had a job laying rails for the railroad. He said he couldn't quit it and go back to the uncertainty of the oilfield. And of course, some of those guys couldn't pass a drug test, so they didn't even try.

I guess those drilling guys went to work driving sand trucks, I sure didn't miss those guys during the downturn, they sure are making a strong comeback here lately, now I just wish they'd weed out the idiots and #*{#%les.

Absolutely!!

Last time all areas of the economy were down so when it came back up everyone was ready this time there were other jobs available and it's gonna tough to get guys back. I like it because it will drive wages up to try to get guys back and those of us still here can make some better money again
