SO THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD IF ANY OF YOU TRADESMAN OUT THERE(BRICKLAYER CHIPPY PLUMBER PLASTERER ECT)WOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH TO SHARE YOUR AVERAGE HOURLY RATE AND AREA YOU ARE WORKING IN. SO PEOPLE CAN GET A TRUE FEEL FOR WHAT IT IS REALLY LIKE AND IF THEY CAN REALLY AFFORD TO BE THERE.

This question has been asked a million times..

Do a search on the forum, for WAGES or TRADIES im sure with some research you will find definitive answers..

I take it, you are migrating with 3 tradesmen? a bricky plumber and a chippy?

Working for a company, expect wages circa 1000-1500 per week.. dependant on area, level of work, skill, and good/bad boss.

Self employed, circa 1000-1500 per week pmsl + what you dont show the taxman

Use the search facility and look for each of the trades - this will produce a wealth of information on the wages in each one as this questino comes up at least every two weeks. There is also a Jobs/Wages thread pinned to the top of the forum.

And for God's sake TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK. It's considered shouting and the funky colours are hard on they eyes.

At the end of the day if you are a good 'tradie' and are prepared to work hard and knuckle down to get your licences then you will reap the rewards....if you come over here with the attitude that you will command the same wages as in the Uk and are not willing to learn the Aussie way then you will not get on. Simple.

Hubby - Electrician $30.50 per hour in Adelaide ($60k per annum) working on PLC's (6:30am to 3pm). Lots of O/T if he wants it at time and half for three hours then double after that.

He could get more working on domestics, but we don't want the long hours that come with it.

in reality you are possibly the exception to the rule.

However any NICHE cottage business, if it finds its niche will do well, until other tradies, discover it...

Are you on drugs or something??
Bottom line ...people want work done properly,and expect it to last..be it by 'a cottage business' or a surf dude who wears shades while fixing plasterboard and wears flip flops during work hours!! ..I know who'd I choose.
Keep me informed of your property build,I'd like to see how it progresses 'dude'
