I have the oppurtunity to become foreman of a small company where I will drive and work with 1 or 2 other people. The owner is a lawyer and just wants to have me run everything for him. The company is new just started in Jan. and already has 80 yards. My problem is I don't know what kind of salary to ask for. I have 11 yrs. of exp. and I have the know how and smarts to grow the business. I am thinking a percentage of each yard( ex. 30%). he was paying a helper by the hour. so please help me come up with a salary that's fair for both sides. Is 70(him)/30(me) asking to much with him paying the help, maintainance, and gas?
