Can't believe the difference I wages!

My DH is currently in Utah for training (from Australia) and he is an exploration driller, he is learning to drill on a new rig that we do not currently have here. Anyway he was talking to one of the boys and he said that that particular guy only makes $21 an hour, which I understand is ok over there but the difference is amazing as my hubby's minimum he makes is about $30 an hour which is only for vacation days/public holidays, usually he makes $60-$80 per hour or about $900 a day give and take a few dollars. They both work for the same company and it really amazes me how different things are and how lucky we are to live in Australia as we didn't really face much recession compared to the USA.  It really sucks that you have to work so hard for such minimal pay (obviously not everyone).   Anyway not really much point to this, I just thought it was kind of amazing the difference between wages in Australia and wages in the states. (Cost of living is pretty high here though).
