Do you live in Australia too?
That $12/hr usually follows an unpaid internship, so those guys definitely earn their keep in other jobs while breaking in. Most of my friends moved to SoCal, then went off to other parts of the world.
I never went to SoCal (thank God). I almost moved to work on that movie, G-Force, a few years ago, but stayed on the East coast of the States instead. I now live in Atlanta, GA and sell the software instead, heh.
