"North Dakota Oil Boom: American Dream on Ice"

"WILLISTON, N.D. -- It's a busy Monday night at Whispers strip bar in the oil boomtown of Williston, North Dakota. A man in overalls drains his glass before showering money on a pole dancer.

By the side of the stage, a half-nude woman is building a miniature house out of folded dollar bills.

Strippers can earn $2,500 (£1,500) per shift here, says a bouncer. "
