   More than 100,000 oilpatch employees — roughly one in three — lost their jobs during the oil downturn of the past three years, according to estimates by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) and the Canadian Society of Unconventional Resources (CSUR).
   Energy prices are recovering, but many are still out of a job, gave up looking for work, retired early or are starting over in entry-level positions in other industries at a fraction of their previous salaries.
Meanwhile, green and other new economy jobs promised by governments as part of their push to transition toward renewable energy have been slow to materialize, and they usually go to better-qualified candidates from other industries when they do.
