i have been working for this LCO for a little over 5 yrs now, first 4 were part-time. I absolutely love what i do we are lawncare and landscaping(mainly retainting walls) I have been the lawncare crew leader for sometime and filling in on the landscape side when needed, the boss uses alot of college students part-time from may to august, prior to and after them i mainly cut alone, we maintain approx fifty properties from 5k to 30 acres. well here is my question: the boss says we are so busy cant have days off anymore til end of season, still cutting, need to start leaves, have a two tiered 180 foot long wall in progress and several small patios and walkways(holland pavers) and mulching jobs etc etc etc...... snow coming soon it is november!! my pay is good only benefit is one week vacation, no rain pay or sick days collect umemployment in winter unless snow , then boss says he is going to be gone one day ooh thought i told u going to florida for 11 days with family. meanwhile i feel i left holding the bag, wife thinks i'm being taken advantage of and i thought i would ask u brothren on ls for some advice what do u all think sorry it is so long really need to vent thanks to all!!!
