Did my first full week of mowing, took me about 55 hours to do everything last week.. I also have bid on a few residentials at the end of last week that I haven't heard back from and have two more to bid tommorrow... So I am thinking about trying to find a little help, perhaps a high school kid, to work a day or two a week... If I hire someone legit and give him $8/hour, what are the taxes I pay??? And what can I expect to pay for workers comp???
