Re: Hourly rate for Brightwork

I'd imagine the $75/hour rate includes all materials and shop supplies and you're getting someone that is a trained pro under hire of a company (insurance, etc)

Where as the other rates, you're providing materials and hiring just the labor and taking on the risk if that worker gets injured on your jobsite. Plus, its probably a "cash" rate...if you 1099 the guy, I'll bet the hourly rate goes up.
