    Make sure you keep everything seperate. Management and hourly employees. Poop rools down hill.

    I just hired a fulltime "leadman" to start June 1. I am paying him 10.00/hr and giving him 100.00/month to pay toward a healthcare policy of his choice. This man has worked weekends for me for 3 years, so I know his capabilities well.:D

    LOL :laugh:

    Sometimes I forget that the economy is not as good in other parts of the country.

    Around here nursing home aides get that plus $4 an hour shift differential for nights and weekends.

    High school kids get $8 - $10 for bagging groceries.

    I am seeing ads in the help wanted for tree workers at $15 - $20 to start and today for lead men at $17 - $25 to start.

    Local ads for employment pay $13.00 and up for lead or foreman of lawn crews.

    Plymouth Valiant, I am from the Boston area also, please tell me where I can find a job for $25 an hour as a lead man on a lawn mowing crew. For 25 an hour I will sell my business, and work for someone else.
