I think the pay is up around 100K, also Kuwait City isn't too bad a place to be and it is miles away from a combat zone.

Pays taxes, has to pay for a place to live, and transport in the US.    I believe that these are included as well as the salary for Kuwait.    The real issue is how much holiday do you get and will they pay for your travel, as this is a US contract I bet it's on ticket a year and 2 weeks holiday.  

Given that I'll stay here in Saudi.

We are doing 48 hours a week over 5 days.   The pay for a bench tech is @ 22000 SAR ($5877) a month, but food and lodging is provided.   We also get money 3 times a year for plane tickets, and its something like 62 days of leave.

If I ever get divorced from my wife I will be on a plane over the free lodging sounds great for a single guy but for a married guy it really does not matter they still have to maintain a place back hopme for the wife and kids so really no savings. If I worked 8 hours per week steady overtime I would make 72k over the course of a year and still be able to sleep with my wife and see my kids each night. Of course I do not have 62 days vacation per year but I really doubt that these guys get that much either.

I worked over in Saudi as well.   They do get 62 days a year vacation.   I was making over $7K a month when I left.   I had a nice one bedroom apartment and outstanding facilities.

Am I missing the accompanied/unaccompanied clause?  I'm thinking a person with those qualifications (wow!) should be able to take their fam...

And someone with those qualifications in CA would make well better than 70-80k.  They'd just have the crap taxed out of it...

I spent a decade in the region so pretty much know the drill....and family (ie accompanied) contracts are rather rare.  First off is the security issues...hard enough to keep employees safe....a lot goes on you'll never know about.....and then there things like larger housing, increased utilities, travel costs, etc.  And education for the kids....generally in the gulf up to high school.  For high school you need to send them to Europe, or perhaps Bahrain at best.....either way it is expensive and most companies won't pay for it.  They may contribute a portion, but likely not.  It generally isn't a place to bring the family to.  Was nice a couple decades ago but the world has changed.....

And then there are other issues...poor employment prospects for wives for example...Teenagers will be maximum bored if they come to visit....every drive in town is death-defying....weather is hot or very hot....

On a positive note...the gear tends to be goodquality ....good modern standards too....parts can be got in quicker than you think....Gulf arabs range from very friendly to sullen....most are ok.   May on average be pretty thick - but you do get the odd bright one that is trainable....I liked it working there - but I'm a lot more mellow than most....and I had a family contract...

A while back I made it through the first round for BAE positions in Saudi.  The UK people liked me (I filled out the very long application).  Then didn't get picked up by the people in Saudi.  I'm happy where I am.  But if I were ever looking again (you never know what will happen down the road), I would definitely want to look into the Saudi thing.  Problem I had is my Navy background didn't have much in Avionics and aviation-oriented specialties.
