A friend of mine is interviewing for a job with a datacomm company that emphasizes that it is world-wide, and you have to travel, which she can do. It’s a hands-on tech job that she has experience in. So far so good.
So we check it on the Web, and along with the rest of the world it covers the Middle East, including Iraq.
So the question here, is if they congratulate her and say she is so impressive they will give her the opportunity to work in Iraq, how much should she ask for hazard pay?
You hear of security contractors who get figures like $10,000 per week (possible dubious or unique figure), so what does a technician, an installer, get?
Second question, what nations and areas of the world would you expect to get premium pay for, and what kind of money would that be? And what are the risks?
