Firstly, Australia is a phenomenal place for construction workers and other tradespeople. The blue-collar advantage in Australia also includes an attractive pay. Besides, an electrician working in the city can earn anywhere from $120k-$150k (between Rs.50 Lakhs and 75 Lakhs per annum). Secondly, a technician who is willing to stretch beyond and take on a full-time workload could earn more than $150k. Thirdly, even lower skilled jobs in cafes and retail command a high minimum wage with the worker’s rights being well-protected. Generally, overtime payments are high.
