Jeff Lattea wants to stay in the oil and gas industry. So when he was laid off from his job in Houston about a month ago, within an hour, he had his resume updated and sent out to new companies, and signed up to get his background check in order. Within 24 hours, he had a new job.
Lattea has worked in oil and gas since 2012, and he said staying in the industry will mean making sacrifices.
