Default Big Money in Construction and the Oil Patch in Alberta

If you're a tradesman and don't mind suffering a little cold and desolation you can make big money in northern Alberta.
$25,000. per month

I just became a tradesman, about 2 minutes ago. Where do I report and how hard is it for an American to get hired??

Working INSIDE of the cold is tough too. I used to work for New England Frozen Foods here in Massachusetts and the pay wasnt even close to 25k/ month
