I worked on a job as a grip/labourer for a documentary in NSW called The Hunters where the doco was about 2 men who earn over $7000 for 2 nites a week, they live on waterfront properties in Sydney and work outback, most of the money is paid by the government at an average of a dollar per kilo and the rest of the money is made up from woolworths and coles supermarket chains,
these guys only stay soberish for theses 2 nites a week and what they do is not for everyone.
but to the average Aussie its nothing to worry about, its just another day at the office,
they drive around on RTVs with guns and knives and with the latest satellite tracking systems.
Its like being in the wild west as you dodge the bullets and try not to get splashed with blood when they are on a bare hands knife kill
its also quite a remote job to do 16 hours drive west of sydney
