Forum Title: Value-Added to What for Whom?
I've been so busy beating the streets of NYC since April of last year, working to promote and support prefabricated drywall profile means and methods (Magacon), joint compound delivery systems (Mudmaster), finishing tools cleaning systems (Washmaster), and butt-joint tapering means and methods (RebateMate), all designed to make trade tasks safer and more productive, that I haven't had much time to check in with DrywallTalk. Today, having some time, I perused the forums and discussions and found some food for thought about a troubling condition I will call the Productivity Paradox. Having spent most of my adult life as an independent trade pieceworker, I have been painfully aware of this paradox since day one. It goes something like this: I've worked more productively (effectively and efficiently) in order to make more money in less time to gain a greater return on my invested time and effort and create more time for myself to do other things besides working. But the more productive I was, the more those I produced for wanted for less money considering that I wasnít spending as much time doing what I was doing to produce what I was producing. So, my question is, What am I getting paid for, my time or what I produce?
