Maybe for manual splitting with an axe and a wedge. And for no more than $20 an hour under the table. But using a hydraulic splitter, and yours to boot? LOL. $12.

that's pretty much the goin rate.
i had a coupla guys @ 14 ea & i told them the production/$hourly rate wasn't working for me.
they called back a few days later & said ''we'll do it for $10 /hr each, if you give us 40 hrs.

If I was in your area I'd do if for a six pack and some smokes. I'm missing some good physical labor. Knock out a cord and I'd feel like I accomplished something for the day. I miss that.

Man, I need to go dig a hole or something. This sitting around all day shit can't be healthy.

Hell I'd do it for $25/hr no questions asked.  Probably for $15, but $11 would seem kinda low.

What you need are some illegals to pay 5 bucks an hour to knock a years supply of wood for ya.

I would pay illegals more than white people. Those fuckers know what "work" means.

twenty+ dollars an hour is what I pay highly skilled people under the table (My mechanic).  Unskilled get 8-10 8 for a 17 y.o kid and 10 for a 30 y.o with bills.  Journeymen type skills get 12-15.  We have a pretty low cost of living here.  I estimate at 20-35 depending on who you are but I come with lots of tools and skills and don't work by the hour except for very special people.

Illegals get the same pay scale.  When I can trust someone to work unsupervised I sub things out.  I would offer those guys a per cord price and give them the option.  Life is a lot easier when you don't have to give a fuck if they spent the afternoon playing in the woods instead of working.

I grew up on a farm doing this shit for free (well, under threat of force). Now I'd do it for 10 (since I have a job), seriously if you lived anywhere near me I would. If I were unemployed I'd do it for 5,  under the table of course. Why are they asking for so much? At least they get to use a splitter, it makes the job so much easier.

Dragline - white boy, works
Ecolitan - white boy, works
anarchir - white boy (I think so), prolly works
myself - white boy, works

..I also suppose that quickmike and davann are also whities who work.

Before reading the last bit of this thread, I was just thinking about how "down on whitey" Mark & Ian have been lately on the show. Tonight Mark made a comment about "fat white Americans" or some shit being the root of some problem. Wasn't really listening, but bits like that stand out. Ian's continuous Redneck imitations are more dull than ever now too.

I thought this crowd, movement & show were supposed to be anti-collectivist. Ah well.

One group I see a whole lot of are weird white people with some sort of race complex where they frequently sell themselves, and other white folks, short while praising non-whites for being so special & unique lawl!
