Re: Painters wages? When my company was into painting we paid our installers a piece rate.
by piece rate I mean All they had to do is show up to the shop.
They made 40% of the job sale and we paid for ALL materials, from work trucks to and from job brushes masks sprayers tape EVERYTHING!
The company made a killing because, well paint is pretty cheap and we own Behr Paint, and the installers made a killing. Of course the faster they got it done the more money they made and the faster they got to a new job.
