I'm sure they don't have the same benefits but he really Ike's it. 25 a hour more in your area I'm sure. Great 401k and ok insurance.

Id get some quotes on Health Insurance, right now. You may get something decient for less 1500$ per month month.

Working for 140$ per day is going to really suck.

It's more than 140 a day. Factor in that 1500 insurance policy, 401k match,short/ long term disability,vacation, life insurance, holiday paid, and probably a couple more.

I try my best not to think of it as $200 a day because it's depressing knowing you can make that in a few hours riding a Ztr.

I stand corrected its 4$ more.

Not too mention the insurance is likely 200$ per week.

Yes you can. But this business is so weather dependent and cut throat it's ridiculous. Granted, everyone of my grass cutting properties are commercial. I only do residential landscaping. So it's steady money, but the benefits are what is attractive

Id think long and hard. Somehow I feel like your emotions are getting the better of you right now.

I may have to work some over the winter, but Ill be right back at in the lawn business in the spring.
