Talking to a young guy yesterday. Knew him when he was at secondary school about a decade ago.
He now lives in Aussie. Not because he wants to but because he feel it is the only way he can get ahead.
Over to watch of few games at RWC and to see family.
Drives a truck.
Earns roughly double what he got here. And then there is the employer funded super on top of that. Cost of living not much different.
His rig is slightly bigger but much more sophisticated than here. He gets lots more training on the job and he reckons he is about three times as productive.
I reckon he has to be more productive because his wages are higher and hs employer trains him more and invests in better capital goods for him to use, in order to make a profit.
