I had a man contact me regarding doing some mowing for me on a sub contractual basis. Wanted to know if I would sub some work to him. He would sign a non-compete contract. He had all his own equipment, truck, trailer, everything. I could just give him a list and addresses and he'd mow them. I would do the billing and pay him a percentage. What would be the downside to this kind of arrangement? I 've known him a long time and he's very honest and reputable.
