Hey Lawnsite crew I am building my business and this year I hired my first employee. I currently have 3 strata contracts, 2 are not that big and 1 is a 2 hour lawn cut only, al together it's around 35 hours per week, plus I have a few other residential clients. But it's more work than I can handle if I want to include irrigation installations as well. My first guy was great, but he left for another job. The problem I have is with this lazy kid I have working for me now who seems to call in sick at least once per week, and he took last week off to see his out of town parents. It's too late for this year so I figure I'll call him in when I need him, but next year I would like one guy to stick around all season. What is a good hourly rate for good reliable help. Or, should I stop the irrigation installs and do all the work myself. Irrigation is good money though and I would hate to lose it. Thanks.
