You're still exploiting him.

You don't want to admit it to yourself, but that doesn't change what's happening.
Exploiting him.
"hi mate I've got some work if you want to give me a hand on it"
'sure sounds good'
"what's your day rate?"
'£125'
"sounds good, here's the address...."

If that's exploitation then you'd be shocked what's happening elsewhere in the world

Just because there's worse exploitation happening elsewhere in the world doesn't mean you're as pure as the driven snow.

I'm not suggesting you should be splitting the customer's outlay 50-50 with your colleague (after costs), if you are the one finding the work, but he's probably asking £125 a day because he doesn't realise that's too cheap.

You, on the other hand, know full well you're coining it off the back of his labour.

Suit yourself, I can't be bothered to argue ethics with you.

You've repeatedly demonstrated an inability to empathise with anyone in the Covid thread, and what you're saying above is just another demonstration of your inability to empathise with other people.

Difficulty empathising is quite common in people on the autistic spectrum, or those who have Asperger's, and the latter is probably more common in the population than is generally recognised.

But dosent everyone who runs a business make a margin on all the staff they have ..isn't that the point.

Of course, there is a margin. Absolutely.

But there's a margin and then there's taking the piss out of someone too naive to realise he's having the piss taken out of him.

There should be a middle ground, where both parties are being treated fairly.

£125 a day, turn up, with just your tools, do the job, take the money, no come backs, no pricing, not getting materials, no van. Not brilliant money, but would not say taking the piss.
To earn that extra £75 per day comes with a lot of more hassle.

You can also work in local shell or tescos 10 hours a day for same wage,sat on ur ass,no stress,no need 4 tools and literally clocking on and off and with sick pay,holiday pay and pension and literally no need to fret about work or wether any is coming in.your logic is horrendous.now if you said all that but at minimum £175 a day I'd get where your coming from
