Cleaners on oil rigs can earn over $200,000 a year

I know, I've met them. They will say that, but it's not actually the full story. If they were full time, then yes. A cleaner on a rig, in the mines, or even in a permanent public service situation with a carefully jigged roster and hard work can pull a good to great wage. But in general, cleaners do not earn much. Most often, they live a bit desperately.

Who comes up with this creteria?  Owning a car worth at least 80,000 yuan ( 13,063 US$) and living a low-carbon and eco-friendly lifestyle? I don't think a car worth 80,000 yuan could be low-carbon emission one.
What's on your mind...

the planet was incredibly rich in life forms

carbon dioxide is a nutrient

True, but very difficult to land those jobs. Everybody is after them..
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

sorry, I have ZERO sympathy for male rig workers who portray themselves as victims for doing a low-fo  job yet earn a lot doing it

it's pretty scummy to act that way, so to anyone who thinks they are hard done by as a cleaner on a rig, "treated like crap", but earning 200k AUD pa, FU.
