Why does nuclear security pay so well compared to other armed security jobs?
Don't they all essentially do the same stuff?
I saw the plant in my city is hiring 15 new security officers and starting them out at $37.50/hr, if you can pass a "rigorous" physical fitness test, background check, security clearance, and qualify on a few different weapons.

because you need to pass clearences and physical tests so not everyone can get the job. also it is a nuclear plant you are guarding as well.

They do twice as much as a normal security guard so it only makes sense that they make twice as much, and within the premises of a nuke plant, there's always a risk of developing cancer.
They have to get CBRN certifications and do up to a year of training before even starting the job. You have to do daily hazmat checks on top of normal security work. You have to make sure there are no risks for explosions, leaks, or substance exposure.
You'll also be expected to fight off hordes of /k/ommandos when SHTF and they come to sack the factory for depleted uranium.

Places in bigger cities will pay more, but the cost of living will hurt you.
$37.50 an hour in a huge city isn't a whole lot, but in a small town goes a long way. Either way, you'd be able to live a comfortable life style with smart spending.
Seems like a better alternative to joining the military or becoming a police officer, that's for damn sure.

Nuke security pays this much to attract better people. If you paid $8/hr all you applicants would be the guys who guard the food court at the mall. By paying on part with what local PDs pay, you'll get the same candidates (college educated, have had law enforcement training/certification)
While $37.50/hr is a nice number, it's dependent on where you're working. The cost of living around the U.S varies greatly. If this is a canadian power plant, that$37.50/hr will spend the same at about $26/hr in the U.S. (on average)

My cousin in Mississippi get paid $8/hr to guard a chicken farm from 4 pm to 12 pm. He pulls his shift after he gets out of college.
Most of the time he sits in the guard shack doing schoolwork, or playing counter strike.
They let him kit up as mall ninja as he wants to be with a SIG M400 and SIG P229.
If he isn't doing schoolwork he practices slicing the pie, clearing the building etc. He said it is really enjoyable.

This is true. This isn't Mr. Mallcop that every once in awhile gives a teenager a dirty look or breaks up a fight.
Nuclear Plants have high standards and safety rules they must follow. That included screening all incoming vehicles for bombs (they do), following contractors around as they do their work, checking for weapons, watching the perimeter, etc. Many times they are required to have several years of experience in law enforcement or the military.
In a worst case situation, these people are expected to sacrifice their lives to prevent terrorists from causing a meltdown.

Logical, but not true.
Limit for nuclear workers is 50mSv. And thats people working at the plant, not where you probably be - guarding the perimeter.
the LOWEST dose shown to have any effect on increasing cancer in the same time frame is double that.

Ex-security supervisor here. I did the exact same thing for five years. Massive overtime, too. As long as you're not caught slacking off, you're likely to stay at the same post indefinitely. I chose to leave over the monotony.
