Sub-contractor has tools and everything else stated above, he also works his schedule in to your, or sometimes you have to wait a day or two for him to make it there if he is in the middle of something. Is not what you want to pay, is what he needs to charge to stay in business and make a living... in most cases the numbers are not much off between when you need to be and he needs to be, price always works out for both parties, GC and Sub contractor, no to mention that GC will provide constant work.I provide all tools. I schedule all jobs. They provide transportation, insurance, fuel.
Want to pay flat rate of $100/job (3 calls/day). Full time work.
Am I paying piece work employee or subbing?
They will not have time for sidework.
I don't read ya Drift...if pay gets cut in half hourly at 15$...then pay them more.I know here in u.s. if i schedule & provide tools that two big flags.
However, I don't want hourly. These are 3 hr jobs. So thats just silly. Hourly would lose. I would rather pay piecework because it would be win for everyone.
I just dont want to pay for a spare vehicle yet. If I do hourly, well pay gets chopped in half.
$15/hr to suit up no one would take it. Especially in short bursts.
A good sub shows up early and never leaves the job site till his work is done !! Pack a sandwich and fill your thermos with coffee !!!With piecework wouldn't I have to still pay for travel?
I schedule a job at 9 a.m. & 2 p.m.. "employee" picks up toolbox in the morning and goes about his merry way. If he shows up at 6 a.m. then goofs off I aint payin for that.
Job 1 is done, & he goes home doodles the wife, watches t.v. , eats a healthy lunch, whatever... Well hes "off the clock". But when does he go back on the clock? arrival on jobsite?
