With the local supply of labor virtually exhausted, energy companies are willing to pay Permian workers very well. This is no exaggeration. The Midland Chamber of Commerce estimates that at any given time, the industry is looking to fill at least 15,000 jobs! They frequently will even offer temporary housing to start right away! They need thousands more workers to meet demand of the booming industry. They actually have had to pay 20 percent more salary than other areas of Texas for equal jobs simply because there is so much work for people in this industry in the Permian Basin.

Oil field jobs in the Permian actually start at close to $100,000 per year! If you’re an experienced truck driver in the Permian, you could make close to $300,000 a year! Unemployment is generally lower than three percent, but for decent workers, the job offers will be there.
