Lazer or others, I am in the position this year of needing a full time employee. My question is this, how do you pay them?? I pay as follows, Sarting pay $8.50 an hour for first 30 and then up to $9 and after 60 $10. Second year returners $11 all season. We run four trucks and two blowers in the winter, but only two of the trucks and snowblowers are mine, therefore I pay $40 per sub hour and $21 per blower hour. <br> What type of pay structure could I establish with a full year guy. I like the security of a full timer, and we could do maintenance in the winter also, but what else could we be doing?
