    (edited).

    We are in a major city and it's hard sometimes (I don't earn anything due to bad health), but we know that we are better off than a lot of people.

    For us, the best part is that DH loves his job so much. He knows how lucky he is that he walks out the door with a grin on his face every workday. He is very good at his job, and he considers each and every person he works with a friend.

    He has had to have extra leave this year due to unforseen circumstances with my health, and his bosses words were: 'Job second, family first. Do what you need to do.' He is an amazing man.

    Wow, mining jobs are very highly represented here on BH. I read in the paper that mining represents around 2% of the total Australian workforce so we must have most of the mining wives as members here

    But remember the tax on pay so high in massive, my partner does FIFO and earns about 180k a year but the amount we loose in tax is literally thousands a months, I think about 2 or 3k a month goes in tax.

    My husband doesn't have a set annual wage. He gets paid by the hour. He's self employed and is his own company, but has ongoing employment with the same employer.

    He doesn't get paid when he doesn't work. He has no leave entitlements, no overtime (is paid the same hourly rate whether he works 4 or 14 hours in a day), doesn't work when it rains a lot, so each week his earnings are different and are dependent on the hours he does.

    I'd have to agree with MothersMilk that more money does not always = more work. My DP worked incredibly hard the first year I met him, long hours, often nights. He earned $34,000 and I was the main breadwinner because his business was struggling.

    My dad worked as a delivery driver for a short time for the biggest a$$hole in the world. He was paid a few hundred lousy bucks a week to get up at 2 am and be treated like a piece of dirt. He was yelled at by said a$$hole when he was late after he was the first at the scene where a woman had been murdered!!!

    There are loads of people who work jobs for average and little pay who work bloody hard. Nurses, teachers, aged care workers... They are not valued enough with the attitude that hard work = high income earner.
