It is a mess for Indiana guys. You are not the first one just finding this out either.
The best idea I have heard is to work your contacts and find someone who needs some contract labor. You supply the labor, you bill the company and keep your guys on the payroll.
I am not sure if it is ever going to snow either! I do not know what you could have done to prepare either. Charged more for jobs and saved enough to keep them on board?
