Thank you for your response! I understand your point of view & trust me, I am all about saving money! Maybe I am too nice but I feel as though I have shafted these guys. I promised my foremen unemployment. I just laid the last foreman off on Friday and now we are finding out he's not going to be collecting more than $100 a week. He just had a baby and rented a house so this doesn't bode well. Basically I'm giving him his last check this Friday and sayin, "Good Luck, See you in spring." If everyone finds a job and we actually get a lot of snow I am going to be scrambling to find help (not to mention train them). I would rather pay to keep the people on call than scramble to fill their spots when it snows. I typically only keep 2-3 employees through the winter so our rates are still reasonable.
