    What do you guys pay for starting a new worker? How often do you give them a rasie? Do you give them paid vacation or insurance? The problem I have is my workers want a $1 raise a least every year and I can only give so much...do you just get new ones every so often or what??

    Thanks for any advice!!

    I start my guys at $12. After a week or two when they know the ropes completely, I move them to $15. Crew foremen make $20.

    it really depends on where you live at the wage. Ask around the area in which you live in. Because you are going to get answers from $7 per hr up to $25 per hr
