A woman asked Ms Taylor about her pay.

Maria Kefalas (21), a Melbourne woman, vented last month on social media about traffic control being often seen as “easy money”.

She wrote, “I have been watching a lot TikTok videos in regard to traffic control. They are all positive.”

“They will tell you what they make and how often they work.

“They’re giving people false hopes about traffic control…it has got to the be the most inconsistent job that I’ve ever done in my entire life.”

Daily Mail Australia: “Some weeks yes, five days work, but then I was away for two weeks,” she said.

“On other occasions, I received phone calls at 11:00 asking me to travel two hours from Melbourne to work for a 12-hour shift or to go to a job site by 6 AM the next day.

It is not stable by any means.
