Chesapeake Energy Wants To Build Compound For Workers

Natural gas lease: 'Roughnecks' move in amid plans to build 'Man Camp' in Athens, Pa.

By Tom Wilbur
Star Gazette

They have physiques for hard labor, a fondness for steak and a home away from home called a Man Camp. They are roughnecks, and they are bringing a new dimension to the region's demographic. More

I'm a woman and am a roughneck. The idea of a "man camp" is just ridiculous and very demeaning.

Thanks for being ignorant Star Gazette and Solomon's Words!!!!!

If stuff like this keeps getting published the jobs that woman are able to do and do well will keep getting pushed under the table....

Gimme a break 1:45!

Demeaning? You know it's a sad damn day when a bunch of guys can't even have a "man camp" without someone being offended.

I'm a white male and I can't say or do a damn thing without being a racist, homophobe or sexist...now THAT is just ridiculous...so the next time it's "ladies night" at the bar just think about that!

And all this time we have been told what an economic boon this shale business would be to all of us living here - money pouring in to the state coffers and jobs for the local people. Sounds to me like all the jobs will be imported. When will we see any good effects from this? So far all I have read is that frack water has been dumped into streams causing incredible pollution, stream beds have been dried up from the incredible amount of water needed for each well, people's homes have been left useless because of contaminated wells....and now all of the promised jobs are obviously being imported.

And people are worried about the "noise" that wind turbines will make 9:58....you would think they'd be more concerned with our streams and such but hey who wants to deal with a little noise?

Even though it may be a setup this is the only place you could ever go and read about a woman feeling demeaned by not being called a roughneck.

I thought a 'roughneck' was one of those rubber garbage cans.

She's not so rough if that offends her. If she hadn't shaved she probably could have just snuck in anyway.
