Depends on how much you want to make. Figure what it will cost you to have an employee. Pay, taxes, unemployment etc. Will you need to put on another truck? If you have an employee will you go out to get more work to keep both of you busy? Remember, it isn't just the monetary costs to think about. When he doesn't show up for work how will you handle the jobs? He won't take care of your equipment like you do. There is more stress with an employee unless you find that one in a million.
