    Round up the usual suspects, & you know who you are.
     
  2. The fact that you are analyzing these costs are great INMO. How else can you determine if an employee is a producer or a slacker. Not just in hand digging but gluing, coverup, etc, etc. It is manual labor to a great degree even with a trencher. I've seen guys that look really busy but get little done. Experienced a guy recently who was the busiest non-producer I have ever met.
    Thanks in advance

    "Soil climate" ???? :laugh:

    Rotar, get yourself down to the libaray and borrow a copy of Brady's "The Nature and Properties of Soils" and/ or spend under $12 at amazon.com for this:

  5. Economic climate
    Political climate
    Soil climate
    I can see how one could put those two together;)

    this place is just prone to bust balls..
    Although some painless information has been given to H/O's lately....

    I remember when I started here...
    I came in Guns a blazing.....Got flamed for a few months....

    purple haze was still around with his "dinky pipe" stories.
