Over staffed?

I never understood how a local competitor makes any money or thinks it is a good idea to send out so many employees for such small jobs. For each one of his jobs (mostly very small commercial properties) they send their entire staff (probably around 10 to 12 employees) at the same time to each job site.

If he is paying them for travel and loading he will have way more travel and loading wages than actual revenue generating wages. Though I guess that is a large part of the reason all of his equipment and trucks appear to be 20+ years old ready for the junkyard.
