Lurpy I have never ever mentioned tax dodgers. I dont know who did but you picked up on it.Why are you assuming high earners are tax dodgers?
Maybe it’s reverse psychology..
The only high earners in Plastering are the ones who source work and sub it out.
I assumed we all earned similar money until I joined here and heard lads skimming living rooms with artex ceilings for £300. That still blows my mind. These same people wonder why Plastering is s**t money lol.
Also it’s not boasting if someone asks you what you charge and you tell them.
Plasterers just like other workers will earn better money in boom times and high demand areas over bad times and economically less well off areas.
Telling someone how much you charge is not the same as 'bragging' how much you earn. You may charge £10.00 per meter for skimming. That doesnt tell me how much you earn.
I should imagine that anybody getting the chance to earn big money wouldnt waste that opportunity by spending as much time as possible on the internet? I am only on here because I just had some toast. As soon as me coffee has gone...........so will I.
