    Okay your doing goood on your gross sales I would say, so I can't say much anymore:waving: $1500 is good money per crew, but it goes out fast I'm sure with the expenses. I'm sure you have some room to cut a guy off each crew and or start another crew. Keep up the good work, sounds like your really trying to turn your company around, I be routing for ya!

    Just watch out in creating your new crew that it's not made up from the loafers on the other crews... That would be interesting.

    4 man crew? I don't understand 3 man crews! Basic economics and the law of diminishing returns

    I was referring to those whor work for a township, or government employees. You usually see about 8 of them smoking a cigarette and talking while one person might be working.

    For me Im pure redneck :drinkup:

    Highway Departments across the land switched over to long handle shovels because too many of their employees were getting disability pensions from leaning on short handle shovels. :rolleyes:
