Just wondering if it is normal to pay for an apprentice when they accompany the tradesperson on the job? Asking cause I had a plumber attend a job and he brought his apprentice for who he charged as well.

Did the apprentice do any work?

Yes - it's normal to pay (a reduced rate from the trades-person's full rate).

 

Someone had to hold the bucket.

Its normal. But usually head office would send them out to the bigger 2 man jobs. Not callouts to change a tap.

Yes normal.  Same as if they needed a laborer.  In Auckland plumber apprentices are often charged out at $30-40 an hour.  They should be helping out and not just watching.

It depends on whether or not he's a 1st year or 2nd or 3rd year apprentice
