Heres the picture...
Have been working the fly in/out game for sometime now, where i consider my w/mates as pretty much family as we live away from home for 2 weeks.
The camp where we live houses 300 odd people, inwhich everyone knows everyone, think of it as a small community.
Here i have the respect of my fellow workers & from my bosses, Get given jobs/tasks and am Pretty much left alone to do as i please i guess. Pretty croozey man i can even jump into a ute & do boglaps around the minesite without worrying about something being said, but the main thing is Im comfy here, happy you could say.
NOW a new job has been offered to me, inwhich Ill have to pretty much start from scratch, & if i take it & dont like it well who knows what happens.
The job i have now offers job security, annual leave & sick leave, Im on salary & get paid for my week off.
The new job will last 18mths til a new contract starts no annual leave, sick pay etc & dont get paid for my week off.
The new job has a gross yearly wage of $100,000 + without overtime 1/3 more than what im earning now...
FORD.... "POWER TO THE PEOPLE"...
Depends what you think the prospect of finding more work at the end of the contract is, if you think it will be renewwed, or picking up another job that earns at least what you get now will be easy enough, then go for it, otherwise the extra money to be possibly unemployed in 18months hardly seems worth it.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
If the new job is 1/3 more pay but no annual leave or sick pay, work out what this is worth on the wage you are getting now, also remember some contracts require you to pay your own tax!! it might work out that you are better off where you are now. This is taking into consideration you don't want holidays in the next 18 months and you don't fall sick.
