Could anyone tell me please what a wet plasterer could expect to earn in or around Brisbane - or a fully qualified bricklayer - as my husband is both. Thanks.

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 am a carpenter and will be moving to Perth in November. I have never been to Perth before and would appreciate some advice on a good place to live. I have a young family and wife and need to start work soon after arriving
thanks Lee

Default Re: the official jobs/wages thread...

Hi all, going through the process of moving over I am a fully qualified carpet and vinyl fitter and have been for 10 years. Does anyone know what kind of wages they pay in Oz, and why if my job is on the MODL list, why is it whenever I go onto any job vacancy websites, I get "Sorry, none available"

Many Thanks

Paul

I do mainly web marketing and I would earn low XXX,XXX per annum. I have done a lot of development and this should grow and I do more projects I enjoy.
