What is Plenty of Labor?
Plenty of Labor is a community group with the purpose of bringing labor to a market that is needed. The idea of Plenty of Labor is so you can find help or get an odd job very quickly within your community.
Are you community minded?
Yes, P.O.L. wants to make each community a better community by bringing people together to get odd jobs done in a timely manner.
How does P.O.L. work?
If you need help, look at the map and type in a few key words of what you need help with, or look at the map and see members of the P.O.L. Army in your neighbourhood.
How do I get paid?
In the app, there is a way to text with the customer. ALL negotiations such as location, price, time, and work, is between you and the Customer. We are not involved in that. Make sure you have all the information before you quote and agree to do a job.
So, you see a job, contact the customer, negotiate terms, apply for the job, do the work get paid.
How much does it cost to be a member of P.O.L.?
We like simple, the cost for workers is $5 per month or $50 for 1 year. The cost for people who are looking for someone to lend a hand is also $5 per month or $50 for 1 year.
Do you screen workers before they can become members?
To accept jobs with the P.O.L. app, we will have a rating system. Over time, a worker will develop ratings given to them by people who have had them help with an odd job. Ultimately it is up to the Customer to determine who they let into their yard, or into their house.
Who / How does the Customer pay?
When you post a job, you will be contacted by workers near by to assist you. Let them know what work you need in detail. The more detail the better. Then, negotiate with the worker for the job. Once you mutually agree to the terms, accept the Provider. Once they’ve finished the work for what you agreed to, pay the worker with the agreed upon terms.
