I think $2 a foot. All inclusive.

I have no idea if you really own a business.

Small operations are not able to dispatch the 2nd person off to somewhere else. So even if the job is really a one person task - you still have to factor in the 2nd person, you can't just tell him/her to stay home, if you do that - they'll not get 40 hrs, if they don't get 40 hrs - he/she will quit.

This is why people complain about not being able to find good help. Good help WANTS 40 hrs.

With a small operation, if the 2nd guy/gal is just there playing in his/her phone for 4 hrs - then so be it.

-hundreds of t-shirts. Some w/ grease stains, some torn & tattered.
-7 pairs of jeans, ranging from Levis to Polo to GAP. 1/2 of them have holes in 'em.
-1 belt
-1 pair of old worn out Nike shoes.
