Wall Street Journal on Maine: Lots of Snow, Not Enough Plow Drivers
https://www.wsj.com/articles/in-maine-sn...1514203200

A Christmas Day article that made Drudge today.

Maine is having trouble finding enough snowplow drivers, another sign of the way low unemployment is taxing states.

The state Department of Transportation has about 50 openings among about 700 positions and expects 30 snow storms in the season that stretches from mid-November to mid-April. Exacerbating the problem: some cities like Portland hire their own drivers and pay more, and private sector demand for experienced drivers is also high.

Any mention of the drug epidemic that taints the urine tests of the numerous applicants?

Is it considered a conspiracy if they really are after you?Huh

No mention of that, since anyone hiring them would also require a drug test. They did however point to the low unemployment rate.
