This is all too familiar a scene here in west Texas. I read this story by News West 9 today about the Easy Rider having to close routes due to lack of drivers. Sadly, this will cause a bit of a snowball effect as well. Closings mean that workers have no transportation to work, which means another business needing another employee. It's pretty crazy to think that even one of the best economies in the nation comes with a down side. Last I read, we had a 2.1% unemployment rate. I guess that also means that we just don't have enough people to fill all the positions needed in the Permian Basin. I posted the original link for this story below if you's like to read it.
