Women Find Lust In The Pilbara Dust

PILBARA women reckon the booming resource region is a great place for single women to find a man. A spokesman for the Shire of Roebourne said men outnumbered women 4.5:1 in the Pilbara, though the figure was heavily influenced by transient workforce numbers. Among the women who have found love is Karratha bar manager Hayley Warne, 23, who within eight months of moving from Queensland, met 20-year-old local Axel Mayo, an electrician. "There are so many men here for women to choose from," Miss Warne said. "Most of them are decent guys, but some get pretty drunk and get in fights. "There's too much testosterone in one place and that doesn't go down well. "We definitely need more women in the place." Miss Warne said barmaids in Karratha could earn $20 to $23 an hour and up to $1000 a week in tips. Former Perth resident Kelly Strange, 42, met her partner, logistics supervisor Bevan Ferguson, in a month of moving to Karratha. Miss Strange encouraged more Perth women move to Karratha, for love and money. "I sent my resume out to three recruitment agencies recently and had three job offers within two hours," she said. Karratha Tavern manager Mick Brown said it would be wonderful to see more women around because they would create a calming influence on the men. "They're a rowdy bunch, but they're all making big money and they're good guys," he said. But a local sex worker, who did not want to be named, said Karratha did not need more women, but women in the town needed to change their attitudes. She said local women were ignoring men who had non-mining jobs. "There are plenty of girls, but many of them are gold-diggers," she said. "I know quite a few of the young guys and they say unless you work in the mine site earning $2000-$3000 a week, the girls don't want to know you."

In my early days in the Pilbara, the ratio was as high as 17 blokes to every sheila.

 

When the North-West Shelf Gas Project was being built, the Heirsson Cove construction camp housed (when I first went there) 500 'single' men, 4 families and 8 'single' girls. When I left 6 months later, there were 3000 single units housing 2700 men and 300 single women. I think there were 100 families as well in the 'van park.

 

A side track...

One rather voluptuous...er...lady was employed as a greaser on the big equipment; she always wore a singlet that, at the end of the shift, had two quite big dirty patches on a, shall we say, prominent part of her frontal anatomy...The blokes loved to see her come in to the wet canteen after her shifts.:yes:

 

Cheers, Bobj.
