From The Great Falls Tribune (via The Spokesman-Review), “Backfilling a work force“:
GREAT FALLS – Concerned about the graying of its work force, three Billings area oil refineries persuaded MSU-Billings College of Technology to create a two-year program in process-plant technology. Almost 50 students are starting the concentrated, two-year program this semester, hoping to take advantage of median Montana wages of $51,200 in the industry.
“It’s designed to give students a solid foundation to enter the industry,” said instructor Richard Wilson, 56, who recently retired from the ConocoPhillips refinery in Billings after 35 years in the industry
Contractors, too, are worried.
