Very true!!! Light a fire under your help!
When I was a young man/boy (40 years ago) working for a crew, we started our first house at exactly 7 a.m. by 1 p.m. we had at least 15 yards done. We where paid a weekly salary 25 yards a day, five days a week if it rained we would have to work even harder to try to get caught up or work Saturday. Same pay whether we did the work in 6 or 10 hours in a day, but if quality suffered he made us redo the yard. Guys are soft these days if a three man crew can't get 35-40 account done in a day. The equipment is ten times as efficient as it was back then.
