Brickman,

I agree that paying more money is not the be all, end all of employee problems ... just saying it has helped for us.
Site is correct...fire them fast if they are not pulling their weight.

Lots of stuff make a decent company that attracts decent help.

organization
good equipment
benifits
be fair

to name a few...

Over all ... I think you have to try and have the workplace a fun place to work ( within reason )

The guys had fun this week getting a gal (normally on maintenance ) to radio around to other crews looking for "the sod stretcher" ... after she realized it was a joke she slugged the foreman and then had a laugh with everyone else
