Wider Image: In Pursuit Of The American Dream
Bazileo Hernandez (L), Jeff Williamson (C), and Terra Green walk through Williston, North Dakota January 13, 2015. The group arrived earlier that day to search for work in the Bakken oil fields with no housing or transportation. Like so many before them, Terra Green, Jeff Williamson and Bazileo Hernandez came to North Dakota's oil country seeking a better life. They just came too late. Itinerant, unskilled workers could as recently as last spring show up in the No. 2 U.S. oil producing state and vie for salaries north of $100,000 per year with guaranteed housing. The steep drop in oil prices has changed that. After trying unsuccessfully for over a month to find work, the friends decided to leave Williston.
