Are there jobs cleaning the oil spill in the gulf that also pay for a hotel provided you continue to work?

I have heard that not only do jobs cleaning up the oil spill pay 18-20$ an hour, but some will actually put you up in a hotel while you work there. Meaning I live in Jacksonville FL, and I could take a job in Panama City or Pensacola FL, and live rent free while making that kind of hourly pay... has anyone else...

It's possible, tho I imagine a lot of those jobs have been filled by those in the area whose jobs have been affected (fishing and tourism industries, especially.) However, not sure they're putting many people up in Florida as yet...most of the intense effort is farther west. Also, there have been some reports in the media of teams just sitting around unpaid doing nothing because of logistic problems (lack of cleanup materials, boats, etc.)
