you guys are not taking overtime into consideration.

If you are paying overtime on 55 hours that is the same as paying 62.5 hrs.
4 x 55hrs (62.5) = 250 paid hrs
5 x 42hrs (43) = 212 paid hrs

That's a difference of 38 paid hrs. By paying 4 guys 15hrs of overtime each you are essentially paying more than you would for 6 guys each working 40hrs.

I agree with this. I also have had several crews out and have monitored time working and found that my presence would cut slacking down. I also have had a foreman that would call the crew on it as well and keep the slacking to a minimum.
