If you run your own construction business and you need to hire additional workers, there are two directions you can take. You can either hire an in-house worker (also commonly known as a W2 employee) or have the work done by an independent contractor/subcontractor (a 1099 worker).
How much more should an independent contractor make than an employee?
If your contractor position is 1099, then you'll need to account for all of those additional costs that you're responsible for as your own employer. In that case, a quick-and-dirty rule of thumb is you should add 50% to a W-2 wage to find its comparable 1099 wage.
