Job Fears At Oilfield Services Giant Baker Hughes

I thought drill baby drill would solve all of the problems. The US would be energy independent, the country would be employed, less involvement foreign conflicts etc. I said not true when repubs sold that bill of goods, I said a temporary glut would only enrich a few, because oil companies don't care about the source of the oil, example is XL pipeline brings bitumen to gulf coast to be refined and exported. The top 6 execs at Baker made 38.7 mil in 2014. Martin Craighead made 14.7. They could voluntarily jump off a cliff and give those 10500 employees 3685$[smile]
