I'm from Norway and we are paid about 240-250 NOK.
Around 40 AUD or 50 USD I think, but we pay alot more taxes than other countries...

I believe you will find a variable in cost of living index by location.Yes a close number should be $25-$30,depending on experience and size equipment.

Well, here in Texas it seems to be a little different! Pay rates exploded over the past 4yrs! And when Brundage-Bone came to town and was snagging every good operator they could, pay for every pump company increased to meet the demand, so those companies could hold on to the operators that they could! But, to answer the question, Pay is around 14- for Rookie, to 26-28 for Exp-Senior Operators!!!!!!!!!! But if if Texas was not a Right To Work state and we had a Union. I'am sure the scale would be higher, alot higher!!!!!
