the official jobs/wages thread...
 
Hi everyone,
Thought it would be a good idea for the people not yet here in Oz who are researching,to get an idea of the wages paid here and for what job (and for the people here in Oz who just want to be nosey ;) ) .As this is info I found hard to get hold of in the UK.
Although, if you would rather not disclose all your personal details, just popdown what you are happy with people knowing, I'm sure it would be a help.

Me- not working
Hubby- Carpenter on $30 an hr

We are on the Gold Coast.

Hi Donna and good shout.....
Me also Carpenter in Perth and wages for me differ weekly......good week,including a few hours Saturdays....up to $1500.00 , bad week.. no Saturday and minimum hours....$850/950.00.
Hourly rates can differ...know most are on $25/30 per hour and heard talk of some on up to $40 per hour.All say the same though...If you can make up to $1500.00 in a week you are doing well.
Hope this answers a few questions for some.

I don't want to post my income but design engineers in resources sector in Perth are on AUD60-80/hour usually for a 45 hour week plus a 5-10% loyalty bonus. So that's AUD130-180k/year.

Perth is a great place to be at the moment.

Not there yet, but offered jobs in Perth:
Hubby Engineering Electronics Technician offered $50k starting salary
Me offered job with well known migration agency as trainee $34k starting salary plus bonuses.

Both of us turned these down, as we are not going to Perth, but to Adelaide. I also think the salary offered was too low for both of us. Looking on Seek we've found jobs advertised for more.

HUbby is an Airframe Mechanic and is on $42k plus overtime which takes him up to about $60k. Theres no way in the world that we could survive on his basic wage - not in NSW anyway :( but with the overtime we're fine :)

I work in marketing, current salary is about $85k + super

OH works in recruitment and made about $125k last year, including commission payments (which unfortunately get taxed as fringe benefits at 50%)

These are both Sydney salaries

Some people are earning lots more than me - they must be the mythical people who can afford to buy property in Sydney!!!

Just as long as you don't post your pic again on here ;)

As Wall & Floor Tilers Deb & I charge between $30-$35 per m2 + GST dependant upon areas tiled and the amount of metres, distance to job etc. Rural areas like ours pay more than metro areas, distances to jobs are much greater though ;)
