it will vary from company to company.

One worker = $10 hr?
Workman's comp/SS taxes = $3-4

Total = $14/hr (depends on your market)

$14 * (40 hrs/week) * 30 weeks = $16,800.

Are you providing any benefits? Is he a crew leader? Does he get paid more? Is your season more/less than 30 weeks? You do the math. Add overtime if you need to.
