all these dudes that come to work for you will have in their minds what they need to make a week.
$/hr don't mean **** to them.
They think weekly paycheck.
If you don't give them what they need, they find ways to take it…. lagging on jobs to make OT, picking up side work on you, reserving energy to work a night job.
Either way, paying 8-11 an hour because "that's all you can afford" costs you more money in the long run. Pay higher, hire guys that will work for the higher wage.
The other guys will apply… learn quickly who is who.
