You’d have lads here who’d hardly boil a kettle for someone for less than a hundred quid


#623

Your auld wans got mugged off there,€100 Is loads for a painter


#624

He tells me for the size of the job he’ll have a second fella with him and do the whole shooting gallery in the one day, 10 or 11 hours work, for 220. Big enough area to cover in fairness


#625

100 euro for a days work? Painting is a crappy job, that is cat.


#626

Painting is done by useless cunts who weren’t able to cut it at anything else.


#627

Painting is often done by lads who work hard and didn’t have their mammies and daddies spending a huge wedge in sending them off to college.


#628

You can say what you want but it’s a physically demanding job and deserves a daycent wage, 100 a day is an insult for anybody who’d do it right.


#629

Exactly. Some of the cunts here would sleep on the floor if there was (manual) work in the bed


#630

Painting =Physically demanding :rofl:.Jesus Christ I’ve heard it all now.


#631

Actually that makes them sound like sex workers


#632

Fair enough to me, pay the man. It’s still 100 a man for the day and rightly priced.
All fine and dandy for those who are prepared to shell out more.


#633

Anyone who would pay a painter by the hour is a mug.Drinkin tae and talking shite all day.


#634

The black market is not cool folks.


#635

Not to mind the Bovril and ham Sanger @11 - a bit of a grill around 1.30 and apple tart and coffee @ 4sh.
A middlin’ bucko might squeeze in a ride before quitting time if he got lucky…


#636

Youd find plenty to do it for a hundred a day. And they will be back again next year to re do it


#637

Lads wanting fellas to get paid less than €25k a year to do hard honest work and the same lads giving out about people who won’t get off the dole.

You literally couldn’t make it up.


#638

Running a roller is grand, cutting in and skirting boards etc, that’s a cunt of a job. I’d pay any man practically any amount rather than paint say, a small room like an en suite.


#639

Cutting in is fine.

Painting a door is some pain however


#640

Do you ensure all the escorts you use are tax compliant?


#641

Pay the polish lad for a few hours work to do all the niggly bits then do the big plain walls yourself
