I'm currently a crane operator in vancouver , making $60,000 a year , living paycheck to paycheck . Been looking at truck driving jobs in Edmonton for $80,000 but want to know what its like living out there .

We have a crane operator on our site and he is making a shitload of money and was working exactly 0 minutes the last 2 days. Per week he is making 5k$ net into his bank account, he even showed me his payslip and i was carrying 100lb pipe for 267,5$ a day Wink
He is a well head boom truck operator.
It's his 4th year now, before he did 8 years coil tubing.

DAMN! A quarter million a year?? You can work just a few years and go retire for the rest of your life in Thailand. How do I get Canadian citizenship???
