So then he went back to being a driller working offshore for a while and now he is the superintendant of the drill and blast crew. He gets $150,000 per year plus extra super, income protection insurance and a nice bonus on his anniversary date every year and doesn't have nightshift. At times in between he's been a truck driver and has driven buses at times for his friends bus company. He has many different licenses and he has also done lots of study along the way including getting his training and assessment diploma and occ health and safety diploma.
    Just wanted to add after reading everyone's posts that after tax my dh gets $100k. His previous employment he had shift work and a lot more stress and got paid so much less, doesn't make sense sometimes! in saying that dh did the hard yards to get where he is. We have also been in the situation of struggling and earning $40k and although some have said money doesn't buy happiness i personally don't understand this concept. certainly makes life easier and makes us happy

    No DP but I'm currently a student. I have a trade qualification and studying so I can teach my trade to apprentices in a TAFE or school. Will be on a lot more then my $36,000 a year once I've finished my qualification. I'm only doing the study because it will give me a better income so I can buy our own home and it means better working hours and school holidays with my DS. Money doesn't buy happiness for me, my taxable income was $16000 last year and I have a great life!

    I am an undercover hubber wishing to be a little discrete. My husband holds a senior position in the judiciary and is on a base salary of approximately $330 000 plus car. With away from home allowance for trials outside of the city, it can add another $100 000 per annum. When we lived in the country he had a junior role, the wage was slightly less, but we received a house and car as part of his package.

    DP is a labourer and earns $38,000 a year. After seeing this thread I have told him that he is definitely in the wrong field

    DH is an electrician who did his apprenticeship in the mines (grew up in a mining town) making less than $300 a week. Now that he is qualified he earns somewhere between $150000 - $170,000 plus housing (we pay $15 a week) he works approximately 5 days on 5 days off but we have to travel over 300km to the closest big w or target ect. So we do around 40000km a year in the car and pay ALOT more for services (a box of Huggies nappies is $55 as opposed to $33 in the closest big town)
