Salary and Pay Rates
Graphic Design

How much are Graphic designers paid per hour?

Graphic designers usually either work for a studio or firm or operate independently from their home or office. In a studio, an entry-level designer can expect to be paid $15-$18/hr, however a graduate with competence and a worthy portfolio can expect to start off with a salary of $45k-$65k per year, which would seem like $25/hr to $36/hr, but in reality designers making decent money usually work more than 40 hrs/week.

Working independently is a totally different story. Freelance or registered business-owning designers need to charge more because they need to pay income taxes on that income. They also need to cover business costs like electricity/equipment costs, paper, ink, insurance, etc. Freelance designers usually charge between $40 and $140 per hour, depending on experience, and quality of work. It also depends on location, type of work, type of client, and convenience of the project.

A typical calculation for a freelancer with 3-4 years of experience,

working from home might include:

$50,000 expected annual design salary, single employee

+$40,000 annual operating costs (rent/equipment/utils/travel/insurance)

=$90,000 business costs

/1,750 (BILLABLE annual hours {36hrs/week x 49 weeks/yr})

=$51.43/hr break-even rate

+30% taxes *DONT FORGET TAXES

=$66.86/hr

+50% profit for growth

=$92.57/hr

TOTALS:

$92.57/hr charge for clients

$25.51/hr goes to designer's pockets

How do you repair the automatic trunk closing system on a 1987 Cadillac Brougham Or is it just easier to install a manual type?

YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN IF ITS THE RELEASE OR PULL DOWN THATS NOT WORKING.

I'LL GUESS THAT IT'S THE PULL DOWN. IF THATS THE CASE AND THE MOTOR IS

GOOD,(RUNS IN BOTH DIRECTIONS WHEN 12VOLTS IS APPLIED) IT'S MORE THAN LIKLY

THE LOWER SWITCH THATS MOUNTED ON THE MOTOR. I WOULD RATHER KEEP THE

ORIGINAL THAN GO TO MANUAL,IT'S NOT A BIG JOB.

GOOD LUCK

PAUL G

I have the same prob, changed the motor and no go. where can I get the wiring diagram for this closing motor

The wiring diagrams for these electronic details aren't included in the Haynes or Chilton manuals, but there are good diagrams and fault search test procedures for nearly all electric accessories of the Cad in Cadillac's own workshop manual. It is a thick book but very very good, and can still be found at eBay.

Where can you get a diagram for rebuilding the 350 V8 engine of a 1987 Cadillac Brougham sedan?

Diagram for rebuilding ? Both Haynes and Chilton offer completely acceptable repair manuals that show the R&R process step-by-step for do-it-yourselfers, EXCEPT the details of the machining that should anyway be given out to a good machine shop. Older part no. for a Chilton book is 7462, the current book is no. 28260; don't know the Haynes part no.s. these are available through amazon marketplace in used versions for about 1 to 5 USd plus shipping, and the current printing might be available at car parts stores too. Finally, Cadillac has offered their own, much more detailed manuals for different years; these can still be found at eBay for around 10 to 40 dollars.

How can the parking brake be adjusted on a 1993 Buick Park Avenue?

Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission.

You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle???

Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it. Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there. You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels. To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables. Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight. I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way. When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more. Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little. And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.

How much does a metal worker make per year?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor: In 2002, median hourly earnings of structural iron and steel workers in all industries were $19.55. The middle 50 percent earned between $14.45 and $26.00. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $10.81, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $31.81. In 2002, median hourly earnings of reinforcing iron and rebar workers in all industries were $17.66. The middle 50 percent earned between $12.72 and $25.74. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $10.07, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $31.40. Median hourly earnings of structural iron and steel workers in 2002in foundation, structure, and building exterior contractors were $21.35 and in nonresidential building construction, $16.98. Reinforcing iron and rebar workers earned median hourly earnings of $18.46 in foundation, structure, and building exterior contractors in 2002. Many workers in this trade are members of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental, and Reinforcing Iron Workers. According to the union, average hourly earnings, including benefits, for structural and reinforcing metal workers who belonged to a union and worked full time were 34 percent higher than the hourly earnings of nonunion workers. Structural and reinforcing iron and metal workers in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and other large cities received the highest wages. Apprentices generally start at about 50 percent to 60 percent of the rate paid to experienced journey workers. Throughout the course of the apprenticeship program, as they acquire the skills of the trade, they receive periodic increases until their pay approaches that of experienced workers. Earnings for ironworkers may be reduced on occasion because work can be limited by bad weather, the short-term nature of construction jobs, and economic downturns.

Why won't the alternator charge the battery if everything is new and all contacts are clean on a Cadillac Brougham?

What is it you are using to determine its not charging? The charging system includes basically the generator with its belts, battery, the charging "relay" included in the generator and the wiring. If the battery and battery cables are new and it does not charge at all (battery goes dead in an hour's drive or quicker) then visually check if there's the generator belt still connected, then if it is, check visually that the cables behind the generator are all ok. The first fix if these do not produce improvement woiuld be a repair kit (new brushes, new "relay" voltage controller, and a new bearing); these are easy to put in place after the generator is loose and opened by opening the three or four long bolts on the perimeter, but putting the thing back togethr nearly would require a manual for first-timers. Simple anyway, does not require expensive tools, and the kit is cheap (a couple of dollars). Easier and sure fix is a new generator - some tens of dollars, and includes all the small parts. Just take the generator out, disconnect cables, connect cables to the new generator, install and tighten the belt, and see the lights ! remember also to disconnect the battery before starting to fixture with the generator, and to connect it in the end in order to make the car run...

The Difference Between

If you think you shorted a wire or blew a fuse on a 1989 Cadillac Brougham how do you test it?

Take a test light and with ignition on-make sure you have test light hooked to good ground-check each fuse and see if you have current running thru. For a less technical method, take the manual and check which fuse is for the circuit You were messing with (e.g. horn); draw that fuse out of the fuse box and try to see through it against light. There is a silvery-colour small wire running from one connector of the fuse to the other within the colourful plastic isolator - it is easy to see with plain eye if this u-shaped wire has burned off. If You caused the fuse to blow by throwing in a spanner in the works or something and there is not fault in the circuit, then it should be simple to just replace the fuse with a new one of same type. If the fuse keeps blowing, then fix the faults in the circuit.

What would cause a 1991 Cadillac Brougham to bog down or hesitate when the gas pedal is pressed?

HAD THE SAME PROBLEM IT IS YOUR "TPS" SENSOR located on the TBI. Lots of things, but most probably carb or air related. In cold weather only ? Add the choke related problems. As for carb or air, I'd start checking the vacuum lines for leaks or kinks, because they are simpler to check and cheaper to replace than carb details. Check also vacuum to other than engine-related matters (all vacuum reservoirs, lines to air cond. and emergency brake replace, etc). Then next before doing things with the carb, change the air and gas filters -especially if You've never done this before. Then the carb, possibly accelerator pump, linkage problems, clogged passages, wrong fuel bowl level (doesn't sound like this kast problem to me but check anyway) Sorry, didn't notice Your "1991". Then there probably isn't a carb but injection... check the vacuum and the filters anyway, then the next I'd do would be to pour an injector cleaner bottle in the fuel tank, take the car to a longer ride, and see if the takeoff improves...

How do you change the clock on original AM-FM cassette radio in 1989 Brougham?

Just go to a junkyard and buy a whole unit. Fixing the clock in one of these is probably about impossible. Most yards sell these for under $20 VBD

New Andwer HeadlineSetting the electronic radio clock differs a bit between unit types and years, but it is done either by pulling carefully the scan button or volume button with the radio off - try the scan first (hours) - and the search button or tuning button - again, try the search button first (minutes). Do not pull them off, just lightly. Some units have a separate "set" button that must be pushed; then the time can be changed by simultaneously pushing the scan (hours) and search (minutes) buttons.

The wipers work but the washer doesn't could it be a fuse 1990 Cad Brougham?

o could be many things. First I assume the washer jar is filled- o silly me. There is not a specific fuse for the washers---runs on the wiper circuit. Next the list of what it could be, assuming ALL connections are correct. IS the manual switch YOU move on the dash working? Is the washer pump, which is attached to the wiper motor engaging and pumping or trying to? Now if the answer to those questions are YES, check the pick up tube, located in the washer jar, yet removable , for a blockage or clog. YES TO ALL? Should be squirting at ya.

Where is the radio harness that you can hook your aftermarket radio into?

Usually when you get the radio the place you bought it will have a wiring harness that will fit the car. If not then go to a radio installation shop and ask for one. This will then plug right into the factory car harness and then you connect the radio to this harness. That's it. Good luck.

Where would you find a free wiring diagram online for a 1990 Cadillac Brougham 5.7 liter?

All data type it in your search engine

alldata is NOT FREE..you can purchase alldata for just your vehicle for a minor fee..but it is not free..there are no free wiring diagram sites..believe me...that stuff is a money maker..nobody does it for free.

You can try going onto a car forum and asking the mechanic there.they sometimes will provide you with something for free.

Try Cadillacowners.com forums..then go to the subforum for broughm..

City and County libraries often contain auto repair manuals. There is a posssibility of finding your info there.

Where can you find the brake light fuse of a 1990 Cadillac Brougham?

In the fuse block, under the lefthand end of instrument panel, beneath a plastic panel fastened with two screws. This fuse is shared by the hazard system - check first if the hazard lights work, if they do the fuse is ok and the fault elsewhere (brake light switch possibly).

Where is the O2 sensor on a 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood FWD?

On my 1985 FWD 4.1L Fleetwood, it is behind the engine on top of the exhaust. I would recommend a 7/8" O2 Sensor socket, a one foot 3/8" Drive extension, and a 3/8" ratchet with a long handle, as this will be quite difficult to remove (if mine was like others). When installing the new one, do not tighten it too much.
