Chances are if it was you doing the grunt work you would be doing it faster/better than a helper. That's why you get paid more. I agree a helper should be at a lower rate.

As a customer why would I want to pay the same rate for a helper as an experienced pro?
Exactly what I was thinking
Id say half of my going hourly rate for the helper should be fair enough.
I mean I'm doing all the critical layouts
Welding. Fitups and decisions.
While the help. Does take a beating. Grinding cutting.
