I can't say mines a proved method bc I haven't been in business long enough or hired enough guys but the $8.50 is just until they prove themselves. Minimum is 6 weeks b4 their first $1.00 raise and if they are worth keeping and show potential to become great, ill stretch the raise out to 12 weeks (3 months). They are at $9.50 after 1st raise plus $1.50 if they pass applicators test (which I pay for) and random bonuses plus $10/week for fuel back and forth from work to home.

Like I said, they can be up to $11/hr by seasons end if they earn it but I try to throw little incentives in. But you are correct that most people who work for these smaller wages are younger guys.
