    Rig worker pay jumps nine per cent - by Gordon Jaremko, edmontonjournal.com
    Education pays especially well in Alberta oil and natural gas fields this fall.

    Drilling hands who make the grade for their new occupational title as rig technicians are hitting a wage gusher.

    Hourly pay jumped about nine per cent for veterans who quickly passed exams set by the province's apprenticeship system.

    Increases average about five per cent for workers who have not yet completed the program begun last winter by oilfield employers, trade schools and the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board.
