It is what it is - the law of supply and demand - the only factor when it comes to what you are paid

Engineering people in Sydney would have been in the same boat. Even at its worse, I was earning more here than I could ever get in Sydney - which is a dead-zone for real project engineering

Yes. Mining/Oil/Gas engineering does pay more than infrastructure engineering when the peaks are on because the return is much higher.

No, but I did get to keep my job due to a mass cull at the office. It did involve a minor move to another country though!!!

And often pays more than infrastructure engineering when the troughs are on too - building services EC&I are the mud race of electrical engineering design

Oh yes. Buildings pay poorly.

An architect with 15 years experience gets about £80k. Forget that.

No. Haven't had a pay adjustment for the past 10 years. Couldn't be happier.

Spoiler:
Corporate tax is a flat 17% after first tier exemptions (first $100,000 is tax free), expenses can be used to offset taxable revenue and dividends paid are tax-exempted.

Mine just came in at 2.86% on the basic pay (a global standard unless you well under paid or being encouraged to leave) and 5.6% added to the bonus component. Interesting tactic.

Changing jobs again for about 25% more pay. I only lasted a few weeks in the other job before this offer came along

Back on a new mining project in the city after several years in an industrial estate - more nice places for lunch and loads of hot women to ogle

And it's proper engineering contractor hours too - minimum 45 hours a week. None of this namby pamby, leftie, staffie snowflake 38-40 hours. Work me until I drop but just pay me for every second of it

Things definitely on the up in WA in my gig

It appears so. We have been getting a few recents calls from WA. All has been very quiet for a few years. A couple of my clients have left their jobs for better money elsewhere over there too.

Job numbers released today and I see WA has been the winner in recent times. Things are looking up over there.
