i work for BHP Billiton and am paid $14 AuD per month...thats about $14,500USD.

and that is full time rates, not contractors. Contractors get around $1500 per day, on average.

Grads who are a coulpe of years out on cotnract earn about $110-$130 per hour.

You dont need to be at NASA to get dollars like that. Most engineers get that type of dollars.

You want the big bux then go to Abu Dabi and they dont baulk at $300 per hour...its not a problem.


What do you do at BHP? Are you in the mines in WA?

Just talked with a pakistani, 22 years old, working as electronics engineer at NASA and earning 10 000 USD per month, fucking lucky bastard.

I'm around the same age, earning peanuts, life sucks.

Actually you probably had more luck than him being born in a wealthy country etc. He got there not through luck but through hard work.

I worked at NASA back in the late 60's !!


I was an assistant in team building a huge moon-surface-like floor at one of the Hollywood studios.
Crazy job !
we for example carried countless bags of dust there to simulate moon surface where no wind blows it off.  


Oh boy, I was young then and it paid out good. Strange thing is I never saw a movie where that creation was used and I remember wondering why was NASA doing those special effects  Undecided

nicely played Wink

A lot of engineers make that kind of money my friend... Sorry to disappoint you. Especially with grad degrees in engineering from a reputable college.
