"As long as we're making steel, the pay at Nucor is awesome. My base pay this year, overtime excluded, would be somewhere around $34000. With production bonus, I will make $100000. With the overtime I've worked, I look to gross somewhere north of $135000 for the year.Granted, that's as long as we're making steel. If we don't produce, I am only guaranteed that $34000. Of course, even in the doldrums of 2008/2009, I still made $80000."
