`I want to get out of the oil business...It's just too much of an emotional roller-coaster,'' said Phil Money, a 42-year-old mechanical drafter who was laid off by oilfield services firm Halliburton Co. in December.
Mr. Money worked for almost eight years with Halliburton in Houston helping to make design adjustments to oilwell tools.
Since losing his job just before Christmas, he has been scouring the Internet and newspapers and talking to recruiters about jobs, but so far he has had only one interview.
And that interview at the BurgerKing went very well. Finally he has come to realize that his only future is flipping hamburgers with the wet-backs that he so detests.
Noah...Is been a month since the last time I had the pleasure, and the privilage to read one more of your great pices of .... (Pulitzer award) writings. For all we know Mr Money along with the over 13,000 veteran employess that got the ax recently was a good, honest, and fine American. Working for a living at Burger King (a national franchise), is no problem, when you have 3 children to feed like he does. Above all I'm truly amazed at your great sensitivity for our neighbords South, that trully shows character on your part.
