I grew some last year and took on a few employees. It sucked because some of them came on late in the year.. drought.. blah blah.. it was a slow year for mowing. None the less I will need these guys back next year but most of them have found other jobs. What can I for these guys over the winter? I was considering a hold back + a match type of deal to provide them with a small paycheck over the winter, or some sort of performance bonus they can use at the end of the year. Someone else has to have some insight on this.
