For quite some time now, I've toyed with the idea of giving up on engineering and combining the greatest love of my life (apart from SWMBO:Cool with earning a living. Consequently, I've visited "caravanjobfinder" quite a few times but the trouble is, the best you ever get from the ads is "pitch/water/electric + a SMALL wage" Question is, how small ? Even granted that ffi' and I arn't materialistic types of people, we're happy with a good book and a glass of wine, at our time of life (44 & 45) we still need a wage that we can live on without breaking in to our savings. This isn't just a "we're fed up of engineering and recruitment and just wanna bum around for the rest of our lives" type thing. We're both grafters, enjoy hard work and love our Fulltiming lifestyle, but the fact is that after 20 odd years in the aircraft industry, watching a/ its slow, painfull demise and b/ the amount of corporate "B/S" thas now involved, we both feel that we have more to offer, that theres more to life and that we might be a lot happier doing a job we love but earning a lot less brass. Any ideas what the average might be?
