      I know it's bad but is it as bad as it was back in the Spring?


      I have been in Oz for the last 4 months, I left my town cos I needed a break and I could not find work. I won't be back till Xmas at the very earliest and it would have been 7 months by then. Loads of work here but it just ain't home.

      What kind of work is there in Oz? As I fancy escaping the dreary UK for an Oz spring/summer.

      All sorts mate, it's a different world to the UK.

      Construction, bar work, farm work, office work you name it. If you're willing to graft you'll be turning jobs away. Yeah it's just starting to warm up slowly now, the start of their spring I believe.

      Very true mate, my last job was $25 an hour, $27 on events, inc free food and a walking distance from where I was ataying. All I was doing was events in a casino. Cost of living is higher but you still make much more than the UK.

      Unless you have something specific to come back here for I'd stay in Oz.

      Which type of visa did you get?

      It aint gonna get much better mate.
      England have had it to good now too long,many poor country's in the world are catching up with us regarding wealth.
      China is a great example along with Russia!
      If a country like England is not export and importing any more how can the country become more wealthy,we manufacture no cars any more,lost Rolls Royce,Jaguar,Mini,Rover.
      We was once called Great Britain because that's what we was, conquers of other country,a powerful nation that made things the rest of the world wanted.
      Can you name one thing England manufacture that the rest of the world wants?
      Everything is so much cheaper made abroad now,even out government gives contracts to the Germans,telephone call centres go to India.
      We let in too many foreigners that took the work the British didn't want to do,then the Brits get ****ed cuz there are no Jobs or money for them.
      We will recover but trust me it will never recover to what it used to be.

      417 working visa mate. Don't regret it for a second have had 4 months of 30c+ heat and no rain, money in my pocket.

      I am going back to Uni next Sept, but obv. that's a year away. Yeah I wouldn't unless I had something, just wondering if anything had changed for the good, but it would appear not.

      Now's the time to go if you're gunna. Just before all the others leave pre-uk Winter. Always be one step ahead of the other backpackers is my advice, they are like sheep mate.
