After all that, I can't honestly see a ton of room for profit.
My buddies father worked in a factory, after over 20 years he was making a little over $10 per hour which is what we start guys out at. What employees do with their money is their business, if they can get a better wage somewhere else I am more than happy to give them a good reference. It might be different in other areas but around me people WILLING to work would be happy starting at $10 per hour. So what is a fair wage for a lawn worker?
