    it will vary from company to company.
    add your overhead recovery to thier salary and you'll have your figure.

    ours is about $20K/season, $40K/year.

    One worker = $10 hr?
    Workman's comp/SS taxes = $3-4

    Total = $14/hr (depends on your market)

    $14 * (40 hrs/week) * 30 weeks = $16,800.

    Are you providing any benefits? Is he a crew leader? Does he get paid more? Is your season more/less than 30 weeks? You do the math. Add overtime if you need to.
