Okay, here's the setting: MC is a handyman - not a contractor, not bonded or licensed in any way. Hired to do a job with mostly cosmetic fixes. Painting walls, fixing dents/cracks, installing new bathroom fixtures. MC lives in a small town in Indiana and this is winter, his slow season where jobs are far and few between. What would be a generous daily pay rate, keeping in mind it's all cash and under the table so no taxes are due. Generous meaning enough that you'd take the job even though you think your client might be a little nuts (but not really dangerous). Does $200 USD per day sound about right? He'd be working mostly a standard 8 hour day.
