Most roofers don't carry any form of workers comp. And actually wave the insurance, as it is up to at least 30% here in FL. Not sure in CO.
And, how WC works, its Rate * Gross Wages.. So, If your paying a roofer $25.00 * 40 hrs/week and have 10 guys that woudl be 10,000 gw for the week * .30 = 3000 more in just COMP..
Now, the 30% rate, is loballing it here, some comp companies will charge you more, up to 50%..
so, when a roofer is making say, $10/hr, its actually costing the employer a ton more.. , As the employer has to match SS Tax, and MD Tax, Suta (if new employer this is usually 2.7%) and FUTA, and Comp.
$10.00 Gross Wages
So, the next time you want a Raise, and complain over the Quarter you get, understand, that its costing your employer MORE then a Quarter.
