I'm currently looking for a general labor for my company this summer, full time work. What is a fair wage to give? I'm looking for someone around 17-21 years old, the min wage here is 10.25$, I'm looking to give him around 12-13$ an hour, 40 hours a week. Does that sound reasonable or am I am to cheap? If you were around 17-21 years old and had no job, would you considered this a "decent" salary ? Seems all the kids want to be paid 18$ an hour with no experience, then they complain how hard it is to work outside all day long in the sun. Thanks.
