I was a residential swamper in Edmonton. We made a flat rate of 228 a day and then bonuses for tonnage and for helping other routes finish their work. Our drivers made close to 300 a day and then had our bonuses to boot. Because of that, we had guys who'd bust their asses to get their route done as quick as possible so that they could get on route help time. Granted, we only worked 4 days a week as well. I know that I was set to make about 56k in my first year. We have drivers who won't take supervisor promotions because they already clear six figures just driving a truck with swampers who do the dirty work. I have no idea if this is the norm in other areas of Canada, but that's how it was for my company in Alberta.
