I am fully aware that being concerned with others' rates while working is a considerable faux pas, but something has been egging me for a bit. How does the key grip's rate compare to the gaffer's? Are they usually/supposed to be the same? I was under the impression that it was. Also, does the BB grip generally have the same rate as the dolly grip?
Of course, I know this depends on the production, the relationship of the hire-ie, and the deal one works out at the beginning, before production. But in general, typically, are these people supposed to make the same amount? Discounting kit rentals, of course.

It's all a negotiation. Producers are going to low ball you, and you are going to high ball them, and then hopefully you can meet somewhere in the middle.
And the first thing out of their mouth will be, "We don't have any money but..."
