What to pay??

I have been in this business several years and have quite a few customers now. I think I may have to hire help this year, or for sure the next. I dont know how much to pay a person to work for me. Should I pay by the yard or by the hour? I was thinking by the job, that way they dont jack around. They will actually work and get more done in a day than they would otherwise. But I still have the ? of what to pay..a percentage of the job like 1/3 of what I charge? Am I supposed to pay for lunch for them? Any thoughts?
