Got to be honest rh I wouldn't be able to assign 4 weeks to it so for that reason I'm out. Regarding rates it is what anyone who has nothing on and local should go for imo, we ain't da vinci and they're just walls. Better than any agency or day work prices from contractors. I myself can and do earn a lot more consistently but doesn't mean I'd sit on my arse while someone else gets what on offer. @cowen I think you need the work to expand your speed and questionable quality level. Works work pal, could do a lot worse.
My point was @cowen that every so often you have to take what's on offer. I know contractors that pay Â£sh1t pm2 meaning you would have to do at least 65m2 UNquestionable quality to get the 115 that rh is offering. That m2 plus preping, loading, cleaning 5 days a week ain't easy. Where as day work generally is quite easy imo. And basing on your novice level a bit of patching and making good is a bonus to you cos my last college lad was taught nowt on that side of things and he was/is as good as they churned out. Not knocking where your at pal and sorry for any offence caused, ive prob took a chance on someone worse, just thought it was a bit early in day for you to be hypothetically turning work down.
@rh going rates got to differ for everyone but the job, any job ,is only worth what the customer is willing to pay. Or failing that what the spread is willing to accept at the given time. Without seeing the job I reckon your not far off.
Whats going day work rate atm then?
To be fair to RH what other people on here probabley don't realise is that south Yorkshire has got to be 1 of the lowest paid area for tradesmen with a hell of a lot of plasterers chasing not enough work and sadly his rates reflect this.
This would be deemed as steady to reasonable at present in south Yorkshire in his total defence!
Personaly I don't think he needs a slagging on this 1 fair enough rates for the work expected if just patching/day work and hes offering 4wks.
Us lads from south Yorkshire have always had to travel below Nottingham or above leeds or west to Manchester to get national rates sadly.
No streets paved in gold in Barnsley, Donny, Sheff, Rotherham im afraid!!!
Im not moving there then.
