    Quoted from lordloss:

    How much do you guys make per hour?

    Australian wages vary significantly.

    We are supposed to be "The Lucky Country" but unfortunately we get taxed to the hilt, very high cost of living down under.

    Current minimum wage is $18.93 an hour, or $719.20 a week. $37,398 pa

    Specialist professionals can achieve well over 3 times this.

    Rank Industry Role type 2018 salary pa

    1 Information & Communication Technology Architects $138,144
    2 Engineering Management $133,927
    3 Information & Communication Technology Management $132,307
    4 Mining, Resources & Energy Management $131,462
    5 Legal Generalists - In-house $128,988
    6 Accounting Strategy & Planning $128,373
    7 Accounting Financial Managers & Controllers $126,906
    8 Construction Management $126,122
    9 Construction Project Management $124,603
    10 Insurance & Superannuation Management $124,432

    Tax is killing us

    The current tax-free threshold for resident individuals is $18,200, and the highest marginal rate for individuals is 45%. In addition, most Australians are liable to pay the Medicare levy, of which the standard is 2% of taxable income.
