I have had my one employee for a year now. I just put him on the book this past may. He makes $10.25/hr. His duties are basic...mow, move base material, level , screed, move blocks, all your basic standards of entry level employees. He does not have a license so he gets rides from family to and from work (15 min ride). On occasion I have given him a ride if we ended early or if no one was available. He called and left an aggravated message desiring more money or he will need to look else where for anothe job. He is not a foreman mind you, and does have anger problems when away from worksites, thankfully. He does work his ass off and out shines those with more experience. I dont feel comfortable putting him in front of clients for sales and he doesnt know a yew from a maple tree. Part of me wants to tell him hes lucky to have this position and to go pound sand. The other half does respect the work he has put towards the company and work with his needs. My question to all is what are you paying someone with a years exp. with your company and his background/situation. I feel im right on target but would like more info. Thanks Oh as a side note he found out that others make more than him but they do have a license and a landscape/hardscape background. How have you dealt with those that know others pay?
