What's a reasonable rate of pay for temp work?

  1. True, you should pay him more. 10 squid an hour seems a bit tight to me.

    Does this job not require any qualifications?

    How the heck does someone get by on 10 quid an hour for just a few hours a week?

    He finds somewhere else to employ him for the other hours.

    I suppose if he could only work one hour a week, you would expect him to be paid £400 an hour?

    I'll take any job that pays £400 an hour! When can I start?
  4. If I was going to try and get by on just one hour's work a week I'd expect a lot more than £400 for that hour.

    And whenever we book in consultants for temp or long term projects the rates are always dependent on the amount of hours to be billed. E.g. $300 for an hour, $2000 for a day and subsequent reductions for week, month or yearly contracts.

    Are there skills involved in this lab work. If there are then these need to be considered in the pay.

    If it's the lab equivalent of office filing/making tea, then the minimum wage will do IMO.
