Full time, working in risk consulting in a big 4 accounting firm and on 50K. Hours are long, pay is awful. Interesting work though.
I am a stay at home mum so earn nothing for the past 4 years.
Before was a private nanny and earn about 45k a year and loved it/ had great hours and only worked about 4 days a week.
Hubby is a Town Planner and works for local council he earns about $95k a year. He only works a 9 day fortnight so has every second Friday off.
We think the money/ situation is great for us at the moment with a young family.
I'm a laboratory technician. My base rate is $90k but because I do shift work it's $130k. I'm on a good wicket but I know it won't last.
Dh is a plumber and last financial year grossed 85k he does ridiculous overtime.
When I was working I did aged care. Hoping to get into admin or nursing. Unless we open are own company. We need something flexible for ds
I work in marketing. My 1.0 FTE is $67k but I currently only work 0.6 FTE
Eta just read your original post, I'm in a Uni too, so you must be the same level as me as we have the same pay.
I actually think for what we do, we get paid pretty well, but in today's money, I really could earn more. I also don't enjoy my job but the flexibility coupled with my 300+ hours of sick leave, 230 hours of long service leave and 150 hours of annual leave more than makes up for the wage.

Until 2 weeks ago I was a practice manager and bookkeeper in a small-medium law firm. I worked 4 days a week and earned $75k. Now I'll be a SAHM until (if) I decide I want to find something a couple of days a week. Don't want to go back to my old job due to travel time.
