    I'm new to this site and hope to get a little feedback on my situation. How much do u pay your lead guys? Ive been in the business for 5 years and have my own route that i take care of with 1 other helper. It is a small business that gross 200k a year and i have been making the same amount of money for the past 2 years. salary of 27,000 a year before taxes and i think I'm worth more. Any feedback would be great thanks.....
