    I work for a company that pay electricians, some on the mines and some who work metro. And they earn a similar rate but on the mines they get site allowance and lots of other penalties. The normal electricians take home about $1000 a week but the guys on the mines get $2-3k per week.

    The tax isn't the killer. It's all about the hourly rate. If you get a higher wage, then you pay more tax. If you earn $50/hour in a capital city, then you pay the same tax as you do if you earn $50/hour on a mine. The difference is on a minesite, you can get tax breaks for living away above the 26th parallel, or you may get some living expenses compensated for.

    You actually do better earning a certain wage on a minesite than you do earning the same wage in a capital city, due to tax breaks.

    As another PP mentioned, a person doing the same job in a capital city is likely to get a lesser hourly rate than someone doing the same job on a minesite. Yes, you pay more tax, but you also end up on top in other ways.

    I've forgotten the levels, but it's been written here before, below a certain salary (think it's $70k) with government benefits, you are actually the same or better off than someone earning $100k. Over $100k it's not comparable as regardless of the tax - you still have more in your pocket than someone earning below the $70k with benefits (sorry if I've got the brackets wrong).

    It's one of those areas where the carbon tax shows up as a crock. Whilst the tax free threshold was lifted (ie. from ~$6k to ~$18k), the tax brackets above that were increased, so a person earning ~$30k+ is still paying the same amount of tax as they were before the carbon tax.

    On mining jobs...
    Dps mate earns a lot more than him. Enough that he pays his ex $500 a WEEK in child support and he paid $55k in TAXES. O_o
    Except he's broke (we sometimes feed him) because a) he gives too much money to mean but attractive ex stripper girlfriends and B) he just broke up with mean and vindictive ex stripper girlfriend.

    I'm not his personal accountant, but dp and I, despite being several thousand dollars poorer annually, seem to be more comfortable. I know we are happier go figure.

    So anyways like I said dp gets $20 or so an hour, but he gets $800 one week and $1,200 the next. He drives trucks at the mines, so he doesn't have any special trades. It's dps mates with trades in the mines who pull in the money...

    DH is on about $31 an hour for a 40 hour week doing IT desktop support, he has about 12 years experience but no formal IT qualification (has a B. edu though).

    I earn $48 an hour for a 35 hour week doing IT business analysis and technical writing, however I also work for a charity org so I'm probably paid less than others working for a commercial org. I've worked in IT for 16 years and in this type of role for 10 or so, studied an IT/business degree by distance and graduated in 2008.

    I am a deli manager with one of the big supermarkets. I am on a salary of $55,000 plus an annual bonus of up to $5000. I think I get approx $24-25 per hour.

    I'm on $23 an hour as a Diploma qualified Graphic Designer. I'm only casual (3 days a week) and I've almost been in the job for two years now. The other designer (also casual at two days a week) gets about $29 I think. She travels further and has more industry experience though.

    I am an "operations specialist" (hr manager, accounts rep, bit if everything lol) for a company in the telecommunications industry (fibre optic and telephone install/repair) and make $19 an hour casual from home. My sister and I also run our own craft business from my home (making framed art work and stationery) which makes zero profit, just fun to do!

    Hubby gets $38 standard, $47 overtime and $76 weekends. He works 13 on 1 off usually 12 hour days. If he goes away he gets laha as well as his car, fuel, phone, laptop and net. He is a safety supervisor in the rail industry so I think a bit if that is danger money as he works on track. Some poor fella lost his leg the other day being run over by a machine (not on hubby's site thank goodness).

    I'm a teacher and get between $50-$60 an hour "at school" but I don't get paid for before and after school prep, planning and weekend work etc... So realistically I would say around $30 an hour taking into account extra work
