Why can't you just use on post for your tirade DH ?? It make the reading that much more comprehensible .
If I were a newbie again I'd consider 650 in the bank per week alright , it's only for a short time until you can move on to better jobs , and there isn't a shortage of work here . So for a better lifestyle plus ,endless further opportunities and little stress it must be worth a shot .
Has anyone ever earnt the quoted $2400 in a week , assume that's gross , if so what was involved ? Don't get too excited over $144 extra for working a stat holiday , got $275 and I was at home on days off :D
