I would venture a guess of about 375 a day.

At Algoma & ULS pay is by the hour with no paid leave, range $20.00 - $22.00
Algoma Engineers are members of the CMOU and ULS Engineers are members of the CMSG

3 years ago I worked with ULS as a 4th. Take home pay used to be around $6K per month worked with normal working days of 8 hours (there was alot of overtime in there as well though). I don't recall the hourly wage, but I remember that Saturdays were time and a half, Sundays double time. Unfortunatley you don't get paid on your time off, but don't worry because there probably won't be alot of that going on. I have heard that lake companies are screaming for engineers of all sorts. Good spot to go to if you want to get seatime in a hurry and bank some cash while doing it.

Have fun!
