Why is that those of us who don't have to take jobs with little or no profit are the bad guys? I am licensed, insured, pull permits use legal subs etc.. and charge for it, now again we get people who come on here and blast us for charging a higher price than Juans remolding who uses illegal labor etc.. but we are the bad guys! :censored:

How dare you ask for enough money to pay your bills AND take a vacation!

You are expected to make enough money to eat CheesyMac and hot dogs..... you are not entitled to steak and lobster. You should live under a bridge.... you are not entitled to a house. You should be driving a 1986 Yamaha dirt bike...... you are not entitled to a truck.

The average HO doesn't care that your kid needs braces, you mother-in-law is in the hospital, and whatever other personal problems you have. $10 an hour is better than minimum wage, and by golly you need to learn to live with that much!

According to most home owners if you can drive a new truck, own alot of tools, take pride in your work and have experience at it then you dont need a profit. Obviously you are already wealthy in more ways than one. When you become poor enough to own two or three new homes, drive a new BMW and take your whole family on cruises like most homeowners then you would understand what it is like to be as broke as they are.

I started posting on craigslist again. Does anyone have a fair price if they offer to pay me in cash at the end of the day :party:

I also checked out the other contractors adds and I would safely say that 75% were posted by non licensed contractors :furious:

This one guy named Amed even offers de-leading and asbestos removal in addition to painting, kitchens, decks etc :w00t:

I hope he is certified by the EPA for this work! They will come down HARD on uncertified mitigation contractors.
