Re: Uncle Sugar takes care of his own!
Really name a few? I live close to an Atomic Plant (DOE) have many friends and family that work there. They make an excellent hourly rate and benefit package. They only hit a homer with a ton of overtime. If they work 40 hrs it is know different than making $30-$40 per hour (63K-83K). Compound evening/weekend differentials, overtime, and holiday pay then it is killer money. Even have a nephew that is physicist there and brings in 120K per annum. A contract surgeon for the military at USAJOB is 100-200K per year depending on credentials. How much do you think an O5/06 surgeon draws with speciality pay, base pay, BHA, BAS etc.... earn? Not too mention if they get TDY orders cut and draw per diem....Skill set for skill set you won't find too many jobs that there is a HUGE difference in unless it is SF operator vs. PSD for Haliburton/Blackwater/Xe.
