Yeah £3 a meter is ******* good money.....You on about just boarding?....Or fixing aswell....They pay £1.60 a meter down here house bashing and you have to supply your own screws....**** that....I use to load out for my bro, 70 boards before 8 o clock.....Killer!....

The fixers doing the metal stud always earn well, but that's allthey do...Don't screw the boards, don't know why they seperate it up like that..

backboarding - after the studs are done and you turn BACK to board it - backboarding just screwing the boards on

round ere at the mo you would be lucky to get 3 quid for metal and board at the mo

While you lads keep working for these prices the longer you will be stuck with them, not sure i have the answer to the problem but even at them prices someone along the line is earning money out of it you are just being ripped of me personaly would rather lay in bed playing with my old todger than work for them rates.Why is it that a few idiots who throw a bit of paint about and smash a few windows in London the weekend are called anarchist thugs and somewhere else in the world a load of blokes with AK47s, tanks and Katooshka rockets trying to overthrow the goverment are called rebels, perhaps thats where the future lies.

Barry we should lobby all the plasterers in merseyside and stage a mass down tools. no one shud work for less than an agreed rate and if every on adheres to it no firms in liverpool will be able to get work done unless they pay the standard rate. any scabs will be named and shamed. any outsiders will be hunted down. if everyone was behind it we could stop all the sites overnight and get our trade back. each area should do the same in small groups we could help get our trade from the toilet it is in. its about time the industry listened to plasterers, no other trade has suffered such a decline in wages - not even by a long shot the percentage difference is shocking, most wages are down 10% spreads are down 50 - 60 % its sick.
