No one knows your neighborhood better than you do, which is why we started our Local Money project. We want to hear about the big money story that’s happening in your city. Submit our next topic here:

This week, we head to Williston, North Dakota. For several years, workers, often men, were flocking to North Dakota to work in the oil and gas industry during the shale boom.

The state’s unemployment rate is still very low at 2.9 percent, but now that oil prices have fallen, many workers are moving on and leaving behind so-called “man camps” or temporary housing.

In the city of Willston, the city has ordered the crew camps to close, hoping that employees will instead move into vacant apartments and hotels.

Bill Carraher, University of North Dakota professor, studies the homes as part of the North Dakota Man Camp Project and joins the show to explain.

 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
