its who you know network yourself and get your name out there find places where you can meet people to give you the jobs for me I am just getting my safety ticket for driving heavy equipment when I am done I will go to northern Alberta Canada and through several people I met I will get a job like my friend did he stared off at 30.00 an hour but now he is at 40.00 an hour

Yes women have been in the mining industry for years. So how do I get a job as a Dumpy driver. I'm willing to travel. I've been a labourer for 30years..

Great story but the comment on blokes earning 25% more is kinda lame. they earn more because they have been working there longer. i started working in the mines with 5 other men and woman and we all earn the same..
