do you charge extra on sunday?

someone calls and asks for work. let's say trimming. you tell them you have the 2nd week of augest open, or, you have sunday open. is sunday at a higher rate, because it is sunday?

Every day is the same during mowing season. It's a long cold winter, with every Sunday off.

Unfortunately with the weather we have this year Sunday has become just another work day. If I do have speacial requests and they do not want to wait thier turn on the schedule I do tack on a few extra dollars.

Only if the customer requires that the work be done on a Sunday. (office building, or some other reason) But I will never tell any customer that I have a Sunday open. Because I generally don't

yes.... if something must be done on the weekend and we are not behind becuase of wether, or people being out.

we charge more mainly becuase our employees are being paid overtime. so we charge accordingly.

If it were to happen, and it never has, I would charge double.
