Guys,
Just wondering, but how do you go about setting a Charge-out Rate?.
What do you have to take into account?.
Never really thought about this before, but I am looking at going out on my own.
Can you please help?.

Not quite sure what you mean by "charge-out" rate? Do you mean a basic hourly rate?

Hey, thanks Guys,
Truth be known, I am sick and tired of being an Electrician one minute and a Liney the next, they have different disciplines,
especially, with changing vehicles and tools.
The sooner I get out on my own, the better, I think.
I just feel like someone else's dog.
