SO as of now i have a 9-5 programming job at my current company. Over the last few days i received a phone call from my old company asking me to come in for an emergency situation with some of their applicaitons. They went and outsourced the programs to other countries but its not working out forthem and all they did was make the program even worse. So my question is how much should i charge them on a per hour basis? They threw a pretty high number at me for the emergency situation but after this they want me to be on board for a long term contract. So for 1 it is iOS programming so i know roughly what i should be getting paid if i was salary there, but the thing is im not salary im going back to per hour pay. Pretty much working for them it will be like i am my own company. So i know they pay the offshore guys alot of money and i dont want to shortball myself. So any ideas on what i should charge them?
