Architectural Draftsman Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Architectural Draftsman in Brisbane:
"Its low enough pay that im stuck in this job."
Its bad pay for big hours, stress, working for a man who is incompetent himself and has major anger issues. Saving up money to make a move to a decent job with savings security has been very difficult. I would love this job if it payed at least a reasonable amount that I wouldn't be always worried about my finance. I started on a measly $10 an hour and now after over 6 years I'm on, wait for it....$16(something) and no bonuses what so ever. For the first 3 years I was also paid as a casual, no holiday pay, so holidays were very hard times. I get no overtime bonus but am expected to work back & get up my time in lieu. In the past I have completed up to a 15 hour day with no breaks, this happened a lot at the time. My boss was cashing in on my need for a bit more money & the excess of work about. My employer done very well during this period. For the majority I don't even get paid on time. Like 3 weeks late(so 5wks since my last pay). This year I haven't gotten a pay rise.
