Exactly, don't see the problem for your friend?

I'd be hearing "Ca-ching". :thumbup:

Is she an employee, or in business for herself?

So property preservation contractors work for a flat rate determined by others, and using methods also set by others?

Why can't you wave your middle finger, do it your way, and if you cause damage...fix it?

That kid pushing his mower to a different job.... I'd follow him, sounds like he's onto something.

There is a certain degree of latitude allowed allowed as to how you accomplish your job, but they do largely dictate means and methods.

The flat rate is negotiable, typically after you prove you are worth negotiating with.

Waving your middle firnger will get you dropped. You have to be creative. Like refuse any new work for a month due to your overwhelming work load and let them send it all to the second string that screws up everything they touch. Once you start doing it all again they will have a different take on how much you get paid and how you accomplish what you have to do.

THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX PPL
do it with the rider then use a push in the pics. :thumbsup:

AS for them telling you to use the push thats nice NO not gonna be done here, that makes you an employee. They could recommend but not cut your pay or deny because you used a rider unlesss it is in your contract.
