    looks like I am going to lose my crew leader..which does drop me in it a bit.
    This may have been covered before on the forum but I can't find it. How much do you pay your crew leader?....anyone down in Florida? So much work down here on the SW coast its a joke. :help:

    Holy crap....I'm moving up north to work as a crew foreman!

    It almost sounds like they are really supervisors. Crew leaders over on this coast make 11 - 15 $ / hour depending on responsibilities. Supervisors that are over 2 - 3 crews make 16 - 20 $ / hour (usually as salary) from what I understand....I'm the acting supervisor / owner.

    Benefits depend on what you can afford and how much you value your employees.
