    Depends on what somone is willing to pay you. I know companys that pay good. And others that dont care they just need warm bodies. I also think it varys per state and area.

    I have 3 guys at $15/hr, company phone and I split health insurance with them.

    There is a limit in this business to what we can charge, I think that also limits what we can pay.

    There are definitely spray and hardscape companies that will pay more as the margins are higher in those fields.

    Oh ya , im in upstate NY

    I believe it varies as to job description and responsibilities. I have 3 guys who make from 12-19 per hour. We are in ma. It's tough out there!

    I offered my lead guy a half payment on insurance about a year ago and he did not want insurance. Yeah he is young and single . He would rather have the money in his pocket.
