    Your looking at it through your business eyes and not the helpers eyes. Your making a big assumption that he is lazy when he is looking for something that pays more money for less stress on the body.

    That is called working smarter not harder and getting paid more and I call that an ambitious person to better themselves.

    Remember mowing is an easy job to learn (along with flipping hamburgers) so you will get lots of teenagers and other older job jumpers working for you unless you hire guest workers.

    You really want to hire someone who doesn't have any ambition to go to college or trade school but still has decent smarts and will accept a lower standard of living than most people since they won't be making much money at cutting grass.

    Give BobbyGedd a call he works in NJ and doesn't have many customers since he keeps loosing them I bet he works real cheap. He might even use his own equipment if you don't mind seeing another LCO pulling 20 year old equipment behind a station wagon. :laugh: :laugh:
