90k for 26 weeks work? I think that is a lot??
I do think it must depend on the mine as well - we are in the "heavy" production stage- new mine, lots to get through, another new two new ones discovered in the area, I am sure it will be a different story in 10 years. I was only using it as an example because a PP tried to compared teachers and miners saying teachers shouldn't complain and implying miners had it tougher.
HOF - you are right, teachers choose to be teachers - and I am glad they do, I for one would never be a teacher- not in a million years. They cop SO much flack, they always have to justify everything they do, they want to help and yet have to fight for funding to do it. No thank you, I want a cushy easy job that is highly paid and low in stress. Even more of a reason I appreciate teachers - I know I couldn't hack that job.
