Storyteller #15 – from Canada, about social life on-site


Time to introduce some storytellers from the McArthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan, Canada. This person, a man, a white-collar with Cameco, working 7/7 (seven days on-site, seven days off-site), talks about the social life on-site:

The social life here compared to the one back home? Here it’s a… there is more visiting, like I communicate a lot more with people up here. At home I sit and recluse, just relaxing and just be with my girlfriend and… I don’t hang out with a lot of people. I only have a few friends that want to go and fish and such. I’m more social here. I don’t know if it’s because of the situation or something else. When I’m home I only contact maybe one, two friends if they want to do something. It’s a lot more social here, but you know, there are all walks of life of the people here, we are 500, so I can’t speak for everybody. There’s always somebody to talk to basically. Around 8-9 pm there’s almost no one around at camp because people need to get up around 5 am in the morning.
