Underground truck drivers working week on week off earn around 80K before tax, surface or open pit truck drivers earn around 130K before tax.

I know because I am a truck driver underground at argyle diamond mine at the top end of WA.

Hope that clears up this 200K bullshit. not even shiftbosses earn that much, they are around 150K before tax.

THIS!

Plus the only people getting dream jobs like that were mates of mates. I have all my tickets and can drive anything, but I didn't stand a chance.

Also I have done the working away from home thing before. Fucking faggots who jumped at the money but then cried when they couldn't see their family every night ruined shit for everyone.

All mates of mates crap.

Ports or rail is where it is at.

Not as much as "200k" but at a bit over half of that (as well as being a real figure) is a good deal.

The MUA and dockers heavies have things sewn up toO. Have to be family or willing to suck cock for years to be even considered for a chance of working on the docks. Those lazy cunts were striking not too long ago because they wanted to work 4 days on 6 days off instead of their oh-so-stressful normal 4-days on, 4-days off roster (plus they wanted 20% pay rise).

Most only ever go to work if a ship happens to be coming in that day, otherwise they stay in bed, lazy cunts.

Lived in Port hedland where most of the ming activity takes place. Rents are super expensive there. Like 750 - 1000 week for an average house. Nice place though and thats coming from someone whos worked in Perth most there life. Im 27. If you do a bit more research though you'll find out the Australian resources sector is very dependent on chinese demand, which apparently is slowing very quickly. Just check the baltic dry index and M2 money velocity. Both at or near record lows.

It's actually extremely difficult to get an Australian Citizenship and/or work visa. Thankfully at the moment, the Immigration Dept seems to only be letting in HIGHLY skilled people. Also of course the occassional genuine refugee etc.
