Subcontractors fee


What state are you in?

Take a look at the laws for sub contracting in your state.

Most people, even large contracting companies have no clue on what the real laws are when it comes to subs and employees.

One that comes to mind..... Sub contractor must supply their own tools, labor, and material.

A GC pays you for your service that you can provide them (start to finish). If you are just supplying labor, you are an employee and should be treated as so.

Subcontractors fee


How much an hour do you charge on your side jobs? Do you think you could the side jobs if you charged more? Then charge more. That's also how much your uncle should be paying you.
