Wage inflation in Australia (POST NOW WITHDRAWN)
So the typo theory is clearly correct.
PS - I am regularly hearing of 300K for skilled mining jobs. Four times that startled me which is why the post.
This is a recent Australian job advert. Rockhampton region - which means the Southern end of the Great Barrier Reef or a short drive from Airlie Beach where it is warm and the sun shines 300 plus days a year.
7 days on, 7 days off. Must be good with explosives.
Salary: AUD1.2 million plus bonus. That is USD1.32 million.
Anyone think they picked the wrong career?
