Title: $25/hr to split wood?
Post by: Riddler on October 03, 2010, 09:19:05 AM
i called a few dudes from c.list to cut/split wood at my place.
i talked to one balloonhead ("i have a full-time sales job....i do this for fun'')
that wanted $25/hr >>>>>CASH<<<<<< under-the-table....using my splitter

where the fuck do these people come from?

apparently, the recession is over

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.

actually, i got a couple dif. guys that'll charge by-the-cord.
1 dude brings his own splitter for $60/cord.
you hafta hit it pretty fucking hard to split 1 cord in 4 hrs.
=15/hr, his equipment.

all i try to do is heat my house for free
they cut/split 36'' shit for my outdoor boiler & @ 15-20 cord of stove-length that i age for a year & sell
cover my logging/splitting costs & i'm good

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.

i wish there were more like you, comrade.
i even throw in hot meal, with six pack & smokes, of course............
my woman cooks a mean borscht.

update:
a dude called me that actually sheetrocked my basement 3 yrs ago.
tremendous lad & quite reasonable.
so happens he has a layed-off friend.

$11/hr each.

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!

I grew up on the border of the two states, and 90% of my very large extended family lives in Illinois, so I know full well to hate that state more than WI.

You should sub the job out to me. 

You pay me 25 bucks an hour, which is the going rate for two goons, and I'll pay two jibrones six bucks each, and supervise them.  You pay for equipment.

I have a cousin that met and married a girl in Colorado. She never had much exposure to the reality of urban areas like Milwaukee so she tended to do the same sort of thing. She had a heaping helping of white guilt, a lot of blame to throw at whitey and many excuses for blacky.

They moved to Milwaukee and all it took was one little trip to the neighborhood park with their young son to have her whole world torn asunder. They are now planning the move back to Colorado. I had to laugh.

It is the exact same thing as people who have never been exposed to how union construction workers actual perform on the job (might as well call them French) and having the belief unions are good.
