Self-Employed Plumbers may need an accountant at this rate!


We talked about a 4.7% rise in June for self-employed plumbers, but yet again the statistics show a steady rise in pay again from July. 15.8% is the increase in July which is staggering. This should be a powerful message to young people as these figures don't come from the traditional gig like work, but they come from those who are self-employed this should encourage people to take the power into their own hands, be your own boss and enjoy the financial freedom that comes with it!
