Fox News TV - The Australian jobs that are offering six-figure salaries with no experience - but the
Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! Don't Forget To Subcribe My Channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM ABOUT: More than 1,000 jobs with six figure salaries have been made available in one outback Australian town.Entry level positions where no qualifications are necessary are up for grabs in the gold-mining town of Kalgoorlie.The only catch is that many of the jobs are not for fly in, fly out workers - only those who are prepared to live in the small Western Australian town.Many of the jobs are for skilled and unskilled mine workers - but there are others advertised to support the mining industry such as in hotels and restaurants.The highest salaries in all of Australia are in the Kalgoorlie gold fields.According to job search site Seek, the average wage last year was $99,236.Jessica Biddle of the Kalgoorlieboulder Chambers of Commerce said that most businesses will train on the job, and even the inexperienced workers will be paid generously.'Even entry level jobs you can actually earn a very good wage.Average $100,000 a year.' 'We need people to come back to Kalgoorlie.We've had a lot of people leave, and now we need people to come back and reside in Kalgoorlie, so they can benefit from the lifestyle from living here,' said Ms Biddle.Australia's best paid workers are those in the mining industry, making on average $139,303 per year, compared to the average Australian income of $78,832.Despite the town being renowned for its social problems, Ms Biddle insists that it's a great place to live.'There're over 250 community and sporting groups registered in Kalgoorlie, there is something literally for everyone in Kalgoorlie.

Top 5 QLD Regional Hotspots
Cities and towns across regional Queensland are showing increasing signs of recovery in their economies, with flow-on impacts for their property markets. Locations which suffered when the resources investment boom wound down (or were impacted by the growing use of FIFO workers and temporary accommodation camps) have seen a marked drop in vacancies recently and a rise in sales activity. Meanwhile, regional centres less connected to the resources sector have been rising, thanks to growing spending on infrastructure and diversification of their economies. A general uplift in the Queensland economy, boosted by revival in the resources sector, and strong gains from inter-state migration are helping to lift local property markets. ---------- Terry Ryder has been a specialist researcher/writer on residential property for 33 years and has published four books. In 2006 he created hotspotting.com.au to help investors find the best places to buy and invest in Australia.

Kalgoorlie Gold Town
Kalgoorlie Boulder - site of the Golden Mile. Attention was drawn to the state's south-east when Arthur Bayley discovered gold near Coolgardie in 1892. The following year Paddy Hannan, Tom Flanagan and Daniel Shea discovered alluvial gold nuggets near Mount Charlotte when they were forced to camp out unexpectedly after their horse lost a shoe. Hannan's find drew attention to an area which was home to an ore body that later became known simply as the 'Golden Mile'. Hannan's claim was not part of this reef. It was miners, forced to move further south, who stumbled upon this lode. Central to the discovery were a South Australian syndicate who, hearing the news of the gold around Kalgoorlie, moved from a settlement called Boulder, taking the old name with them to their new mining operation. By the end of 1893 over 100 leases had been taken out in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder area. The great challenge of the area was that the local quartz deposits, which are usually accepted as the rocks most likely to contain gold, did not produce high yields. In fact by 1894 the results from mining these quartz reefs were so disappointing that the field began to experience a small depression. Investors were less than enthusiastic and returns were not what had been hoped for. It was a Canadian miner, Larry Cammilleri, who discovered that the quartz in the area was not carrying most of the gold. Years later he recalled: 'I sank on the leader and where she junctioned with the lode material she carried nice gold. I dollied some ounces. I found that the lode matter carried a little gold so started a shaft. This shaft led me to be the first to discover what later proved to be the lode matter which made the Golden Mile famous. The lode was composed of ironstone, with small quartz veins, greenstone, diorite and porphyry, all decomposed in the shallow workings.' Others, including Paddy Hannan, were sceptical about Cammilleri's discovery but Cammilleri replied with the old Cornish saying 'where it is, there it is'. At first, the lack of good gold-yielding quartz in the area continued to keep investors away. It was not until the establishment of the first battery, on 10 April 1894, and some of its early yields (2008 tons of ore from the Great Boulder Mine yielded 15 000 ounces of gold) that confidence was restored in the field. In his book In Search of El Dorado the Scottish writer Alexander Macdonald gives a description of Kalgoorlie at this time: 'When my party stepped from the train at Kalgoorlie, we saw before us a scattered array of wooden and galvanised iron houses...In the near distance we could see the towering poppet heads of the widely known Great Boulder mine, and the din created by the revolving hammers of the ever active stamping machinery assailed our ears as an indescribable uproar. But beyond the dust and smoke of these Nature-combatting engines of civilisation, the open desert, dotted with its stunted mulga and mallee growths, shimmered back into the horizon.' As with all of the gold mining towns progress was almost instantaneous. The first post office was established in 1894. The following year the town was surveyed and proclaimed while some entrepreneur provided the new settlement with a daily newspaper. The railway arrived in 1896. By 1897 the population in the area had grown so rapidly that two towns had been established: Kalgoorlie (it probably comes from the Aboriginal word 'karlkurlah' meaning 'silky pear' which was a common plant along the Boulder ridge) and Boulder which was declared in August 1897 when miner's shacks and tents were moved to be closer to their workplace around the Great Boulder Mine. Kalgoorlie peaked in the early years of this century with an estimated 93 hotels, 8 breweries and a population of 30 000 people. By 1903 the School of Mines had been established and the town had fresh water from Mundaring Weir in Perth. The city centres, which were built at this time, are still largely intact. Hannan Street in Kalgoorlie and Burt Street in Boulder are thick with gracious buildings which announce that here are two centres built on the wealth of gold. By 1910, both were thriving inland cities with fresh water, electricity, a tramline running up Hannan Street, and every possible comfort for men who worked hard for very rich rewards. Today there are still about 50 mines operating in the goldfields district. About half of those are gold mines, including the massive Super Pit, which exploits the most productive square mile of gold-bearing ore ever discovered anywhere in the world. www.ozebook.com

Kakadu and Arnhem Land, Northern Territory
World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park is a place of rugged escarpments, lush wetlands and cascading waterfalls covering over 19,000 square kilometres. Kakadu is Australia's largest national park, and can be entered from Darwin on the Arnhem Highway or via Pine Creek on the Kakadu Highway. The flora and fauna in Kakadu National Park is diverse. Pockets of monsoon rainforest, paperbark forests and wetlands are a haven for Kakadu's amazing wildlife including crocodiles, barramundi, and birdlife. Around 1,000 different plant species, a quarter of all Australian freshwater fish species, and over one-third of Australian bird species can be found in the park. Kakadu National Park is managed jointly by Parks Australia, an Australian government body, and the park's traditional Aboriginal owners. A number of Aboriginal clans still reside within the park. Kakadu is home to one of the largest concentrations of Aboriginal rock art in the world with galleries at sites like Ubirr and Burrungui / Nourlangie Rock. Other spectacular landmarks include Jim Jim Falls, Twin Falls, Maguk / Barramundie Gorge, Jarrangbarnmi / Koolpin Gorge and Gunlom / Waterfall Creek. Kakadu National Park also contains many established walking tracks and camp grounds. At the centre of the park is the small mining township of Jabiru, which offers a range of services and accommodation. Another settlement, Cooinda, also offers accommodation, and is located on the banks of Yellow Water, a billabong teeming with migratory birds, saltwater crocodiles and other wildlife. Cruises on Yellow Water depart daily. A visit to Kakadu is best started at the Bowali Visitors Centre near Jabiru or the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre near Cooinda.

Fly-in fly-out is a method of employing people in remote areas. It is often abbreviated to FIFO when referring to employment status. This is common in large remote mining sites in Australia where workers fly in and out because of the nature of their work and lack of long term accommodation in these remote areas.

West Virginia's bleak outlook (2011) | 7.30
The struggling state of West Virginia is one of the hardest hit by the United States' lagging economy. Read more: https://www.abc.net.au/7.30/west-virginias-bleak-outlook/3718796 Transcript: LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: Recently in the United States, there was finally a bit of good economic news with unemployment dropping to its lowest level in more than two and half years. But overall, the economy remains in a slump and some parts of the country have been particularly hard hit. A recent poll shows almost every American state is pessimistic about the future, but the bleakest outlook of all is in West Virginia. North America correspondent Michael Brissenden went to find out why. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN, REPORTER: Few places in America know economic hardship quite like West Virginia. Here in McDowell County in particular, hardship and struggle have been the songlines for generations. ALAN JOHNSTON: My grandmother on my daddy's side was a musician. She played banjo (inaudible). And my dad was a ribbon-winning old-time fiddler in this area. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: Like a lot of people here, Alan Johnston's family have music in their blood, but coal dust in their lungs. ALAN JOHNSTON: My dad he worked in the mines for 20-some years and then he got so bad off he had to come out of the mines. He got silicosis in his lungs and black lung and they had to remove one of his lungs as a matter of fact. My brother, he worked in the mines. His name's Clayton. And he got his disability in - he's in his early '70s now, but his health is shot. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: West Virginia was built on coal. From the early 1900s until the 1960s, a coal rush filled the valleys or hollers, as they're called around here, with jobs. These were tough people and coal mining was tough work, but it's been even tougher without it. JOHN FANNING, WEST VIRGINIA SENATOR: I think the loss of population is the biggest problem. Up and down this hollow here and in the area around Welchinaw (phonetic spelling), we had 100,000 people. We had bookos (phonetic spelling) of stores. We had at one time 13 car dealerships in this county. We have none today. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: State Senator John Fanning is a long-time local. This part of West Virginia has unique problems, he says, but America as a whole should be better at protecting itself. JOHN FANNING: We have outsourced our jobs. Where do we have anything made in the United States or where do we have anything made in West Virginia? It's not only McDowell County, it's not only West Virginia, it's the United States of America. Jobs. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: When he's not engaged in state politics, John Fanning at least has one of the few thriving businesses in his dying town. His family have been the undertakers here for the past 80 years. JOHN FANNING: We are a county of old people, so the funeral business still prosperous because we're dealing in older people. This is a nice place to live, but it doesn't provide a lot of the necessities that young people need. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: And many of the young people who have stayed have been trapped in a downward spiral of unemployment and addiction. BRYAN: There ain't no opportunities. Cheque, food stamps, drugs - that's about it. LOCAL WOMAN: This place is really awful, it really is. BRYAN: There ain't nothing to do. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: McDowell County has some of the highest poverty rates, lowest education levels and biggest drug problems of anywhere outside of America's big cities. The urban ghettos are mostly home to a black underclass. Out here it's white. Today just a few hundred metres from the Fanning funeral home, Brian and his friends are busy stripping one of the empty buildings of almost anything of value. BRYAN: All my life I've been on drugs. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: And that's a big - I mean, a lot of people on that round here? BRYAN: Everything you see round here's on drugs. LOCAL WOMAN: I've got a 13-year-old son; he's locked up. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: What did your parents do? BRYAN: Coal miners and nurses. You know what I mean? That's about it. Now you gotta have a college education and all that. I guess we was left back in the pack. MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: It's not difficult to see why this would be a place with a less-than-positive view of the future. The last 50 years has been tough on West Virginia. But that bleak outlook has bred a black humour, and as they like to say around here, this is one of the few places in the United States that's hardly felt the effects of the current great recession. JEAN BATTLO, WRITER: We've been down so long it looks like up to us - you know that saying? Actually, psychologically, socially, I don't feel personally that we're feeling the nation's economic crunch the way others have because we've already been there, we're already there.
