## How to Use the Labor Cost Calculator

So, let's say that you are fencing a land area and it's a big one and you are going to lead this activity. Of course, you have other expenses like the sand, cement, steel, nails among any others. However, this is not the calculator for that, we only focus on the labor cost.

The labor cost is the amount of money you are going to spend on laborers or employees to do the job. In the case of hiring people on project, you need to consider how many laborers do you need, how many days it takes to complete the project, what's your travel cost, what's their food expenses, and so on. These are the things you need to consider to compute your labor cost.

You might though you only need 8 people to work for 9 days. Then their salary would be $100 per day. You'll start to think you only need $7,200 to complete the job. To burst your bubble, that's not always the case. You have other expenses and this calculator will help you get the actual amount of money you are going to spend per laborer.
