Probably on the order of $25-35/hour, I would say - assuming this is truly a helper or apprentice level person, not a fully experienced worker.

Of course, that should be workjed out between you in advance of the start of work - assuming you are paying by the hour. Far more desireable from your standpoint to have work done on a fixed-price basis wherever it is possible to define the scope of work up-front. Course, that is not always the case - like on a tear-out of flooring or walls/ceilings to track down the extent of water or insect damage for instance.
