Sick Of Your Desk Job? Get A Trade, Live Long And Prosper | this curious life |
Driving away with a job well done viewed through a ute's rear-view mirror, tradies, and their pay, have become the envy of the job market.


'Depending on the exact nature of your poor career choice, becoming an administrative worker with an arts degree could find you earning just over a third of the take-home pay enjoyed by a master tradie, at least those who endure the risks of a coal mine.


But, worse than that — with the blue collar comes happiness. Turns out it brings a sort of job satisfaction largely unknown to most office workers.'
