    Default Average take home wage

    I'm trying to work something out and my dh works for himself. I have no idea what the average wage would be for someone working in the labour field or a more male dominated roll.

    Yeah $25-35 for qualified tradesman on average and $18-$25 for a labourer.

    DP is a labourer but a skilled labourer and that's the dollar figure brackets on average I've seen for all the tradesman/labourers he works with.

    Thanks. And then you take tax off that? I'm just trying to give dh a wage after business expenses (just a rough guide for our budget spreadsheet)

    Yes, that's gross... So approx 40hrs @ $25/hr would equate to $1000 gross for the week. You can work out the fortnightly withholding here: http://www.ato.gov.au/content/downlo...1N10060512.pdf

    It's about $356 for the fortnight so $2000 - $356 = $1644 net

    Please note: this is an estimate 😊
