Average Price Per Cut? Employee Wages?

What is your guy's average price per cut for residential and small commercial (dentists, bank branches, churches, etc.) accounts?

About how much do you pay your full time/part time employees.

Right now I'm just a small business in high school, I'm doing some research for an Entrepreneurship class.

You have to know your costs... guys here some avg $30 for resi and others will say $75... we don't know everyone elses area etc. small commercials are priced differently than the same size resi account... so you're going to get 101 responses

guys that have employees pay anywhere from $9-15 from what I've been around depending on their job titles and work scope... I worked part time as a crew leader this past summer and was making $14 an hour but I only worked 3 days a week I had my responsibilities along with the pressure of looking over 2-3 guys and checking the whole area... was I under paid? yea, did i need the money... oh yea. guys will work for the money it's just getting them motivated to keep working for the money...

to help you out with your classes do the old $1-$1.20 a min thing... so base things off that for a rough estimate with your numbers.
