Move ahead a few years and add more work. 15 an hour on the books is more like 20 and with overtime 30. So when you break 40 hours with two guys payroll is costing you 60 per hour. Now your servicing 2 property's an hour grossing $100 per hour and payroll is 60% of that for the work performed.
It is far easier to start at a reasonable pay scale and reward hard workers with a raise. Just paying more does not ensure motivated and reliable workers.
Something is not right if your making $100 an hour with two guys
