Ease up man. I have applicants. I appreciate your enthusiasm for pessimism, but, I'm going to run my business the best way I know how. I'm not going to pay someone more than I can afford. Im hiring someone with experience because this position "REQUIRES" one to work on his own. See, I also have fert/weed control, pest control and sales to do. I will pay someone what the deserve based on local market value. You pay your guys what you want chief.
