FIFO worker on remote WA mine reveals sordid messages

Maddy Tull, 30, shared a long list of sordid Instagram messages she has received in a video posted to her TikTok account.

A female FIFO worker has revealed the litany of gross messages she receives from married men on a remote mine in Western Australia.

Maddy Tull, 30, shared a long list of sordid Instagram messages she has received in a video posted to her TikTok account.

“I’m single but not as single as the married men on a mine site,” she said, before showing some of the scandalous replies she has received.

“I think I’ve found my wife on TikTok,” one says.

“I need you,” another adds.

Another man made a rude remark after she shared a video of her hosing down a pavement.

“Handling that hose pretty well,” the message reads.

The majority of FIFO workers on mines are men and Miss Tull has previously encouraged women to get out of their comfort zones and consider joining the industry.

“Pursue the things that set your soul on fire, leave behind anything and anyone that holds this back. Surround yourself with the supporters that only want to see you succeed,” she said.

She said she cried the day she started the job but has since grown into a stronger woman.

Last year, a WA Government-funded report by Curtin University found one-third of FIFO workers experience high levels of mental distress.

Jobs in the mining sector are consistently ranked as offering the highest average salary in Australia, but this has caused a level of misinformation in the general public, workers say.

Despite the number one rank, data from SEEK revealed an average salary for someone working in the mining industry was $116,000 – a drop of 13.96 per cent from 2013.
