Megaera: I know what you're talking about.  In a word, money.  They  
don't care about
the benefits, etc., because they're young and think they're immortal.   
if the money's good, they'll be there.

Especially during a recession when there's no money to be had  
elsewhere as
has been the case with the North Dakota oil boom.

who was in that part of North Dakota last summer -- admittedly I  
didn't have
anything to with the oil industry while I was there, but watching the  
news on my motel room TVs was quite the eye-opener

es: Thank you, Megaera. I've seen these guys from Alaska on south and  
east, and you're right.
I'm so glad the Dendarii Mercenaries had the sense to require a  
benefits package.
