Ok, for you FL guys with employee's....what are you paying? I had a discussion/ argument with one of my guys becuse his raise wasn't enough, he's worth more, blah blah blah. Now he is good, would do anything I asked, can trim with the mexicans, talks to customers...the whole bit. I trained him the way I like, he was green when he started 4 years ago. Now he's 22, married to a chick who runs his life and hates me lol. We are a one truck operation, I am almost always on the truck with the exception of a day or 2 per month. He is on salary so he gets 14 weeks off paid. Right now he is at 360 a week, going to 410. The other 2 or 3 guys are hourly. He wants to gross 500 a week, because he could elsewhere. I politely said well I hate to see you go, but I'm not "that company" with 10 trucks crew leaders and all that. By the way, I do a ton of other stuff for him...lunches 2 or 3x a week, helped him out when his truck was broke, lots of other little things as well. Wow long post sorry guys, so how am I doing paywise???
