    Been a while for this thread!

    I have been busy all through 2014, so much so I worked 6 days a week all year apart from about 6 weeks where I worked only 5,this year has started the same way and the best bit of all is the 19% rate rise I just got!

    How is it for everyone else?

    Once I finish the job I'm doing, I'm not taking on any taping anymore, unless they want to pay me a fiver a metre. I fcuking hate it. Actually considering selling my kit so I can't do it. I'm actually at work today with a recovering bad back, having just had to re board the underside of a stair winder because the chippy who boarded it thinking he was doing me a favour because I was off, made such a fcuking lash up of it, it was virtually un-tapable. Can you sense the tone here?

    Rates are tight enough without fixing someone else's shity work because they're on a price & the price is tight. Fix nothing for nobody and do nothing for nothing . Who comes and fixes your work?.

    I have found out it doesn't matter how good the rate is If they expect you to pick up all the extras from all the cock ups and other trade damage, even if they pay you day work you loose out and when you sit down and work it all out, its the bottom line that counts and nothing else.

    It's not the money side that pisses me off. It's the time spent doing that, that then puts you behind, when you have more important work to be getting on with.

    Yes I have to admit I too have had a half decent price increase which equates to about an extra 300 a month so can't grumble at that.

    I'm lucky I don't have to run around picking up to much craps as the guy I subby off has a few full time making good guys

    I like doing saturday mornings if it puts a little more in my pocket,been as busy as I ever have been in 26yrs these last few yrs long may it continue people.
