We have a 5 man crew with a bucket truck, tractor w/ grapple, dump truck, dump trailer, chainsaws. We are licensed and insured by workmen's comp. and general liability. We are located 20 mi. south of Murray, KY.
What is the pay scale for a crew of our size?

?????

Less than $8.00 per hour. NOT including initial Gas expenditure overhead getting to Kentucky.

Insurance, W/C, Truck Insurance, yadda, yadda, yadda.

More like $5.50 per man-hour

$300 bucks is supposed to pay 8 guys and their benefits plus workman comp and liability. And they have to have their own bucket truck and bobcat and pay for travel? Good Luck finding anyone to work for you while you bank all the profit. Times are tough for people and sounds like you're trying to take advantage of them. I suppose you want them to work more than 40 hours a week for that price to.

Tell you what i'll come down there with seven of my buddies and work for 300 bucks an hour IF you pay my insurance, work comp, hotel, travel, food allowence, supply the bucket truck and bobcat and all fuel for the job and any tools we will need like the chainsaws mentioned. But only for 5 eight hour days a week, we will work 16 hour days if you want but anything over 8 is 450 an hour. Let me know if your interested.

This guy is from Florida and is going to be sitting on his azz at home while he is cashing checks for other peoples work in the cold. This guy is an idiot and I hope he gets screwed in this deal somehow for taking advantage of people in hard times. I just posted in his other post about this same issue. It's probably some guy that doesn't have any insurance or anything and just wants to be a middle man and make some quick cash.

If his wife is hot and then I will supply the crew, insurance, equipment for the job and he can go there and make sure the guys do everything to his liking and i'll keep his wife company for 300 bucks an hour. Only if she is good looking, then that might be an alright deal. Vacation at his house in florida with his wife while he is in the cold babysitting the guys!
