Well now if I cleared $1500 a week It had better be because I only worked 3 days, my biggest one week cheque was $5500 cleared, $3-4000 is normal.
.

Am i the only only who is not really understanding the paying over there?

Scotian lets say you make 3k per week and you work 28 days on and 28 days off, thats 12 thousand in a month, you multiply this by 6 months, thats 72 thousand dollars per year. I know you dont work 28 days on, 28 days off but your income should be around that amount if my maths is right. How would a new guy make 100k in one year in that industry? Sorry if im missing a point here.

What I've read is mostly 14/7, 21/7 and 24/4 as the most common fifo arrangement. So theoretically, doing 24/4 or maybe even 21/7 should net $100,000. What I am not too sure if there are cash benefits (bonuses) in the industry.
