The guy who said he was warehouse security, how much you getting?

Minimum wage in Cali is $8/h (per wiki), while in Australia it's $15.6 (per the poster in this thread). So you are getting paid 170% minimum wage, while OP is getting paid 150% minimum wage. The gap between your wages is not as large as you think.

Plus, if you are a bouncer you work graveyard shift and irregular hours essentially. That job also requires more skills imo, or at least they look for a certain stock of person.

Yep. Worked in a distribution place driving forklifts. Enjoyed the driving but the heat sucked.

I'm a little better than that. Would rep but I've given out too much.

Knocked down about 30 pallets of milk and yogurt drink. Good times.

I'm a supervisor at a warehouse at the moment. Pays pretty well. Going to school at nights.

Ask tons of questions to learn the best techniques. Stay hydrated.

Yeah solid point, physical was obviously what I meant, would be the least stressful, difficult mentally job that I could imagine. I could dig it for sure, be nice to get out from behind my desk.

Is costing more smashing or is costing less? Wouldn't people want to cost less? Our capital city cost of living is apparently the lowest or the country.

Yea it's mostly night shifts, and ya always gotta worry about crazy drunk ****s goin mental. Worked 1 1/2 years as a bouncer and haven't had a fight, I mean I've broke up fk loads but not me vs patron fights. I'm more of a talker, which management seems to like.

Yeah I know, hence the frown, i was just being stupid. Perth is a joke for how expensive it is. Great place, but Christ it's expensive. I know Sydney is higher on the list but I believe that's purely based on rent and mortgage factors there. Everything is substantially more expensive here after having spent plenty of time in both places. It's easy to find a good cheap feed and drinks in Sydney, nearly impossible here.

Adelaide isn't that bad as a place, it's nice around Glenelg, from the 3 days I spent there anyway. Place has a nice vibe.

Yea and we don't seem to have to deal with all these natural disasters in the outer states, like last year when your half was on fire and the other was under water.

The fires here weren't really that big of a deal to be honest. With respect to the peeps who lost homes, it was tiny compared to the Vic fires and the Canberra ones 10 or years ago. I was living in Canberra at the time and it was 10x worse.

BTW Australia's cost of living is WAY higher in most parts so of course minimum wage is a lot higher.
