Hourly or percentage for subs?

    I might do some subcontracting for a friend this winter and am wondering which is better. I told him $60/hour, he seemed ok with that but was a little concerned that since some of his accounts were pretty spread out that he might end up paying me more than he would make because of the long driving time in between accounts. He suggested maybe paying me a percentage of each drive that I plow.

    What are your opinions?

    I rarely higher subs with trucks but when I do I pay them a percentage of what I make on site. (60 to 80% depending on task and how bad I need them)
