Well in TN min wage is $7.25 we follow federal and do not have a state min wage. Currently I pay pretty close to $13 an hour anyway and $15.50 for my crew lead. Roughly double the current min wage. Our largest expense is labor by far. Wow. A lot to consider here. Well I can assure you that my laborers won't be the only one making more as this goes into effect over the next 5 years. My billable per man hour rate will need to pretty close to double. Price of lawns will need to increase a minimum of 40% just for the company to continue to bring in what it's bringing in now after increase in labor expenses. And I will also be increasing my own pay to keep Pace with the coming inflation. I can easily see a 50% or more increase in prices to my homeowners across the board. That's just to keep up.
