Re: What’s the current situation like for car mechanics in Aus?

My mechanic friend walked straight into a job (this was four years ago)

Re: Netflix, Stan or Kodi?

I spent a long time weighing up whether or not to make the move. In the end we took the plunge and have never looked back. I earn more money and the sunshine makes me feel happy.
