Just for the infographic in itself this is worth looking at from the NYT last week: A migration of unmarried men
. Pennsylvania does not seem to show up in those migration stats at all. It makes me wonder about a lot of things. Was there some vast untapped labor resource in Pennsylvania for these jobs. If so then why has the need to replace retiring coal miners
been a big issue in the state for so many years now? Hmmmm....
Which is not to mean there are not gender issues here no matter. From the latest data
available I get this for the distribution of new hiring across the state for the industries most impacted by oil and gas development. You might think 10% is a Mendoza line of sorts.
