Id like know what percentage your labor is of your gross. Right now Im working with a helper and he is only costing me 12% - 15% of my daily gross. I am on the verge of hiring a second man to take my place and have both of them work together on their own. I know productivity is going to reduce, while the labor cost increases, so Id like to get an idea of how this is going to affect my income and whether or not its going to be worth it long term. The reason I want to try this is because of some health problems and to free up some time to get more business. Currently we mow about 60 properties a week.
