Just thought I'd share,am in awe of this vehicle......currently working with it everyday pror to deployment
I applied for a job with a company in Cov that helps manufacture these a couple of weeks ago looked interesting but the money was pretty crap...
I'm a contractor and most of the people I work with are but am aware of the situation as its a project which has a limited lifespan.
The company I was trying for do the armour plates for them, I believe the vehicles themselves are made in South America by the same company then shipped over here for the final touches Armour, ECM etc etc. The job was only some crappy stores job, was advertised at a decent rate then after the second interview turned out this wasnt the case. They asked me to go back for a third interview at a different location, told them to jog on. (In a nice way)
(i.e.a loaf of bread costs 2p in Iraq)
I'm not comparing it to here at all, no point doing that....I was just comparing on how different the locals get paid working for different companies over there....
The translator we had was paid $600 by our company plus $600 by the American engineering firm...
he must be living the dream now
I think quoting wages is all ******** as the cost of living is obviously a world away....also very crass
Thanks for that V.
You are the first person that I have heard who understands what cr6p people quote about how people in other places get paid. It's like they don't uderstand that things are relative. £1 here may be equivalent to 250 or more of their currency, and as said a loaf could cost 2p.
I WAS comparing the daily wage to a UK equivalent because it's an indicator of economical differences. And I bet $10 a day was a good wage!
