Wow that's cheap. I would never want to be a painter.

$472 a day to be split among three people? So like $160 a day before taxes. What are you paying guys. How do you make any profit?

Looks like hes billing labor at 42 an hour. Very reasonable. 15 an hour plus 30% in taxes and workers comp. Add in some benefits like a vaction and maybe a bare bones health plan and your labor cost is at 25 pretty quickly and then overhead another five an hour. So he might be making 25% on his labor.

Working someone 28 days a month would require overtime. For a typical 5 day week, 28 days is about 6 weeks.

3 men for a day is a 24 hr day yes? So what ever your hourly rate is per hour per man per man day times the number of days. If I'm billing out at say $47 dollars an hour per man hr per 8 hrs per man day is $376 x 3 = $1,128 x 28 days-- the original post I replied to said 3 men at 28 days which would be $31,584. I replied with my minimum. Number which is related to my break even costs.

No I think itz chump change to put your life at risk working for people who, in general, make their living by using god to get money from their congregation. My local super church just had a carwash and raffle to buy the pastor a new cadillac. Give me fricking break.

I know where you are coming from but its not that bad here. Mostly small country churches with less than 100 members.

But yeah, I just knew I was going to get that job. Some idiot bid it for $1000 and provided paint.
