It's the same here in Michigan. Truck and tools required for $12 to $17 per hour. Checking cl over the last few years and it seems its that way all over the states.EarthQuakens said:Excuse me while I vent! Been looking for work in Pittsburgh after moving here. Why do people think an experienced carpenter will work for $10 an hour with all their own tools! Then when I get hired as a plumber the guy offers me a job and pay rate and then calls the day before I was to start and says he found someone cheaper! He suggested my starting rate!
