A warning from someone who headed to where the jobs are

"I feel like a hamster in a wheel. I came here to make money. It feels like a trap, and I don't know what to do."

New York Times profiles Jonnie, a 38-year-old female truck driver who came to the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to make money.

There are jobs she says, but the high cost of living makes it difficult to get ahead. The region is bleak and being female in the male-dominated oil fields is isolating.
