Does someone that you call in to sub a job to usually give you a lower price then they would have given the homeowner?

Hi Johnathon,
If someone is subbing for you then pay them what you're willing to pay and make sure it's less than you are charging the customer.

They will but you will probably have to ask for the discount, dont assume it will come automatically.

They might if they think you can give them additional opportunities in the future! If you think you can, and they do good work, tell them and suggest a discount. Or maybe they can refer you for your type of work and make it an even exchange?!

What is the LAW on Sub's?

I have a friend that owns a restaurant and a current (soon to be ex) employee of his has stated he is quitting to work as a subcontractor for a local lawncare company.

I know this guy and he doesn't have any equipment or vehicle to tow a trailer and when I asked my friend to pry a little he told me that this guy is using the LC's equipment and vehicle.

Am I wrong in my belief that a subcontractor is supposed to furnish ALL equipment,insurance, and labor for the main contractor?
Where would a guy report violations of these rules assuming that a violation is taking place?

It seems to me this contractor is taking advantage of this kid and I'm sure this kid won't be insured.

What would you do?
