Paying our hourly guys
part of the way into our building project (small new home), our wonderful builder/contractor passed away unexpectedly. he was a one man operation and his wife was unable to help us out with
access to his computer files which would have directed us to those people Dan had lined up to do the remaining work
since then, my husband and I have been doing a lot of the work ourselves but have had to hire others more experienced for the more skilled tasks
we’ve made great progress and have been working with a 3 man team that are nice people and very skilled at what they do, we pay them by the hour
having no experience in this and going by how I am paid at my workplace (where I am also an hourly worker) I have these questions for those of you who have more experience than I
as it turns out, we are paying these guys for lunch (is this par for the course in the construction industry?)
and most days they get here not always on the dot of 8AM and leave sometimes 10 to 15 minuets before their agreed upon quitting time, I know that they work hard, but we’re billed for that time too.
input please would be appreciated.
