Employee Pay Rates:

What are the going rates on employees theses days, I have interviewed nearly 50 people the last few days and it seems the rates have gone up...

Maint. Foreperson : anywheres from $11-$18 and hr.

Construction Foreperson: $12-$18 also.

interviewed one spanish fellow, and he told me he wants $18.00 an hr. to work construction, had exp. with every retaining wall block out and every paver etc. claims he is an expert in all aspects of Landscape mason, expert with bobcats, mini-ex's etc. valid lic. 10 yrs exp... etc, sounds like he really knows his sh*t
Is $18.00 reasonable?? or too high.. i am used to about $14-15 and hr... have times changed a little? What do you guys pay experienced construction personel???
