A TikTok truck driver earns so much working in mines as a truck driver that she has declared herself an “influencer in the wild”.
Ashlea, from Perth, Australia, is a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) worker, a method of employing people in remote areas by flying them temporarily to the work site instead of relocating them.
She started off in her remote mine as a complete rookie with no experience, but several pay rises later she went viral last year for revealing she earns around £63,000 per year for just six months' work.

At the time, she said in a TikTok video: “After about three months, my rate went to $43.50 (£24.84) an hour.
"For my first year as a greenie (a truck driver who is still learning), I would have taken about $94,000 (£54k) home annually."
"My new rate is about $51.50 (£29.41) an hour so that's pretty good," she said.
And that's not all, because her company rewards loyalty with monthly bonuses.
"And the contracting company I'm with pays you a bonus each month if you stay with them – that's about $2,000 (£1,142)," she added.
"Annually, at my $51.50 rate, that would be about $112,000 (£64k) per annum.
"My bonuses could be around $10,000 (£5.7k). So around $122,000 (£70k) for my first year.”

And in her latest TikTok video, she appears to be loving her latest six months off, showing herself and three bikini-clad mates doing what is known as a “s**t drop” on a beach.
She captioned the six-second video on her TikTok under the username The_Salty-Pinup: “Influencers In The Wild.”
And her army of fans loved it.
One wrote: “You are clearly the hottest one.
“Absolutely perfect body – love it.”
And another recent video shows her touring America, while talking about spending Halloween in LA.
She somehow managed to get herself into a Maxim Magazine party, donning a see-through black cat-style outfit and befriended two “rich people” called Sally and Steve.

Long story short, she had a lot of alcohol and ended up staying in a hotel called Tommy Hollywood instead of the hostel she had originally booked.
Last year, she said she typically does 14 days of work then gets a 14-day long break.
"I think it is pretty good for working only six months of the year as a truckie," she said.
Last year an Aussie traffic control worker took to social media to complain about her job, despite it earning her about $156,000 (£89k) per year.
TikTok user Chloe Taouk claimed to rake in nearly $500 (£285) for a lengthy 12-hour shift.
