Labor Rates

A guaranteed 10 hour day for non-union work is $800.00. Each additional hour is $120.00 till 12 and double time after that. 10-hour turnaround is required.

Union jobs are a guaranteed 10 at a negotiated rate.

There are no half-day rates as I block my entire day to be at your service. Because of the nature of the production business, it’s impossible for me to book more than one job per day.
