    I'm about ready to get my first employee. How much should I pay him per hour? He will most likely be a Mexican guy with little-medium experience.

    I'm thinking $10/hour.

    Should the price go up if he does it by himself? Ie. I get injured and use him as my back up. He drives my lawn truck and does it solo.

    If he is a good employee 10-15/hour seems to be the going rate.
    When I say good employee, I mean shows up on time and does his job. Not necessarily experience.

    Not sure on the second part...
