Been a while since my first post but just looking for some input from experienced plasterers. Currently serving my time with the local council, have 1 year til my trade test. Just wondering what everyone's Input is on wages? my dilemma is try go out myself or work on sites and make 600/700 a week or or take my steady 420 wage from the council and try do one homer(I'm Scottish think they might be called foreigners or something down south) a week and make my wages up. also I only really do bonding and skimming, sometimes dot and dab here. at college I'm leading rendering, ashlar work, fibourous plastering, and coving and in situ cornice etc and really enjoy these aspects and would love to take this further? thanks for taking the time to read and look forward to all your input.
