Hello friends, after 26 years as an owner/operator I learned the "all your eggs in one basket" lesson the hard way. I went to work with a much larger company and run a crew of six and service 450 addresses (HOA) weekly. Other duties include: dealing with clients, open/close shop, irrigation repairs, equip. maint., material purchase, etc, ect. I am being paid a salary of $600 and am averaging 55 hours per week. Please don't get me wrong, i'm happy to be working and am 100% dedicated to what ever I do. My question, am I worth more to a larger company? p.s I did keep all my equipment. Thanks for any input!
