I dunno, but I'd say it's not enough for a US delivery driver that's based overseas.

huh? i was talking about factory workers being outsourced


but I guess you can technically "outsource truck drivers." you can hire seasonal mexican migrant workers and let them deliver your payloads. migrants workers are allowed to work in the US legally

Good job at providing an incorrect comparison to what OP listed.

A pizza delivery driver =/= short haul or long haul truck driver.

Totally makes sense. Let the migrant workers wait for their CDLs too!

Average safety director in the United States can be anywhere from $65,000 to well over $100,000 a year.

I make ~$36,000 a year. What makes it worse is that nobody is hiring safety personnel, despite there being a "huge demand" for us.

This picture sums up about how I feel:

No degree.

"LOL THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM!"

Yeah, yeah...

I've built up a hefty resume since I've started and had other safety directors in other companies tell me that, without a degree, I should be making upwards of $55,000 to $60,000. College isn't the issue. It's the company.

Backend logistics makes sense to offshore.

It's not the company. It's your lack of education and experience. Our EH&S supervisor... that's right, not even a director level... makes $100K. He also has an engineering degree and 20 years of experience.

While your company may be the problem, I can guarantee you a company like mine... the one's that actually pay the numbers you think you deserve, would never hire you because we don't trust a high school graduate to oversee the health and safety of hundreds of employees in a dangerous environment.

I assumed she was too, but was trying to help her out with a plausible interpretation.
