Man it sucks that you lost all of your help. Good thing it's near the end of the season though. If this senario happened to me, I would have let them all go. I wouldn't have asked for the money they made on the job.Just let the scum go. I would have serious discussions with the client who went through the back door to get this job done. I would think seriously about dropping that account. There is no honor among thieves. Don't hire anyone back. Start with a fresh crew and lay down the ground rules from the beginning. This may be a breath of fresh air for your operation. Getting some new blood in the truck. Just my opinion. Good luck, Bill!
