I was just at my supply house , right across the way a Handyman service just rented a small warehouse . I was talking to one of the guys and asked how much do they charge an hour . Well the first hour is $168.00 and each additional is $115 per hour . Materials are not included and they are on the clock when they go to buy materials for the job . Are they busy ? They had 12 vans there and guys were in each one . Then the guy asked me If i was interested in a job . He told me with my 30 years of experience I was looking at $30 to $35 an hour , 2 weeks paid vacation , 401K and medical .
I declined the job offer .
dang, $168 to show up! Were they licenced plumbers, electricians and legel Secretary all in one? Whta was the name?
I dont want to put the whole name up , buy it started with the prefix "Mr."
Now I live in a Maryland suburb , a 2/1 in this area rents for $ 1600 a month . Its not a cheap area . And they are a licensed professional business , they are right up there with the trades with their prices . And they pay their people well . Their guys at 30 bucks an hour make about $ 65,000 a year . Not bad , but not great for this area . Thats about the same as a cement mixer driver , or a heating oil truck driver
