Hundreds out of thousands of women are currently taking up men’s roles at construction sites where they earn $100, 000 just to hold up a sign.
Yes! Four times more than the earnings made by both nurses and teachers, the work vans, rubble, and the traders across Australia are women are earning the money either as Lollipop ladies or as a traffic controller.
“Earning a living as a traffic controller might not be every lady dream, but the job is actually a good way to get your foot in the door,” Bethany Lilford, the General Manager of Altus Traffic events said.
Ms. Lilford has been working as a traffic controller since when she was studying psychology and had wanted a flexible hour work as well as good pay. To this end, she worked herself up over the years and presently organizes an event for the company. Accordingly, she has been encouraging other women to give the job a chance.
Specifically, workers on the West Gate Tunnel and Metro Tunnel Sites in Melbourne are earning around $105,0000 per annum.
Other workers situated in Sydney revealed they earn $130,000 per year and individuals watching the lonely outback highway of the Northern Territory equally as much.
Additionally, ladies working as pipe layers get $107, bore head operators get $118, while crane operators are paid $122 per hour on the Melbourne Projets.
With builders often complaining that the cost spent on huge wages and allowances built into union contract, the union has explained that wages are just a little fraction of the cost and appealed workers deserve more because many workers work for long hours in harmful conditions.
However, dozens of women are now standing guard along the fenced area Sydney’s George Street, with tradies working on the light rail network.
