Actual pay rate - probably about $10-15/hr for a mudder only (junior half of a team), $20-30/hr for a texturer on residential jobs. Davis Bacon average wage commercially in your area is $24.61/hour - does not distinguish between apprentice and journeyman level. National averages are $11/93 and $26.50 for apprentice and journeyman, respectively.

Billing rate from a contractor including overhead and such about $20 and $30-40/hour respectively.

I am a little worried why you are asking this - if not to just check that what you paid as part of a larger contract was in reasonable range, because this type of person you should not be paying by the hour if they are working directly for you. The scope of work should e very simple to define - these areas, this texture - so if you are gettign bids for just mudding and texturing, should be lump-sum for entire hjob, all materials included. You will have to specify finish condition - rough sanded or paint ready or primed for smooth surfaces, textured or textured and primed for textured surfaces.

Typical cost to tape and texture, unprimed - around $1.50-2.00/SF depending on locale and difficulty of texture pattern.
