Does depend on what area of the country…for example the cities will be more costly for trades people normally, outlying areas less costly (the quality of work might be lower as well). $20 a day plus meals is the normal rate in my area for laborers, but for more skilled people it can go higher. About the most is $30 a day plus meals. You may also have to supply shelter if the workers travel to your site (in case you can not find what you need in your area, other areas may have what you are looking for and if you pay travel they will come). There are some very strict employment laws here in case you are hiring for more longer term (like to build a house) that you should know about as well.
