Are you talking on Commercials, Tele-Series, Features?

There are a number of variables including who owns equipment, who's doing a deal ect.

For commercials in Australia on a 8 hour day it goes a little something like this.

DP- Anywhere between 1,000 and up over 5,000
Key Grip/Gaffer charge 500+ for wages and then there is their equipment which could be $2,000+ depending on the set-up.
Focus Puller and Best Boy is around 400-500 ( focus pullers usually rent out their truck/split/dark room facilities ect), Clapper Loader is 300-350

There is no industry set rate, just set rates for certain people. ie: one DP will always charge $3,000 per day. One Gaffer will always charge $600.
