Should Have A Minimum Dailey Rate

Posted by admin on December 6, 2011 in Rates |

I only have one run and providing the kilometers stay the same, the rates are fine as it will cover my costs and pay me a small wage which is all I want. I like the set rates as at least everyone is now being paid the same amount, unlike the last 10 years when mine were lower than most other people. Although, when I worked out my prices to tender it made me realize that after my costs, I have only been making $10 a day, so the new rates for me are better. I am a bit concerned that I won’t get paid a minimum daily rate though, because when some of the students on my run are away my kilometers and pay will drop to almost nothing. I think there should at least be a minimum for everyone. We have always had a minimum rate from when I started over 20 years ago so I don’t think it’s fair now.

    I agree about the minimum day rate.I would also like to add that I think the program that the education department has put in place is a good idea. However, if they can’t afford it, don’t run it. Helping families of special needs children financially is great, but not at the expense of forcing other families (Contractors & Drivers)destitute.
