My girl earns 1.25x of my wage. I won state scholarship to study abroad . Currently, I am working in Adelaide University which is well financed and known around the world.
My girl is a nurse in Royal Adelaide hospital. Believe it or not nurses in Australian hospitals earn more than University scholars and engineers. Exception are mining engineers in Western Australia and Queensland.
Senior lecturer earns around $80K AUD. A nurse in public hospital that does night shifts and public holiday shifts earns $90K AUD including other government perks.
