    Anybody got any good ways to find good help. Ive had the misfortune of only finding lousy workers (drunks, young kids) in the past. I pay $10.00 hr and Im not very hard to work for. Im almost incline to beleive that I will just have to do it all myself and limit work load.

    Don't know if it applies in your area, but have you considered the Hispanic workforce? I have had good luck, my entire crew is from El Salvador, and everyone is here legally. One employee has been with me for 8 seasons. I know it may sound unpatriotic, but I don't even look for American people to work for me. The only Americans that have been good were related to me - my brother and my two cousins. The rest were a disaster.
  8. Patriotic has nothing to do with who you employ.

    Hispanic labor has not been soild with american ways.

    The industry is needed the hispaics cause those emplyees that are worth having are starting their own lco. Just one of many many reasons to go the hispanic route.

    Just make sure they are legal.
