Try living off that :/
they might pay well for stuff like motoring costs , but i`ll bet they probably don`t pay 8 buks for a hamburger, or 500+ dollars each time the electricity bill comes in for an average 3 bedroom home, or 70 buks or upwards for a decent pair of shoes.
look at the price of housing here,
just did a google, The average cost of a UK home is now 162,245.

the average for an Australian property at july 2012 had come down to $550,000.
it`s expensive to live here, it`s expensive to do business.
