ok, so alot of you have workers obviously,,,so what do you do with them in the winter? do you lay them of?

set money aside for them during the winter,,and pay them over the winter with the money you sat aside from there check?

im all ears?
What makes a person want to work during the summer, and then get layed off in the winter?? makes no since to me?

Of course, im solo and understand nothing but incoming checks

My guys do the same as I do, we work thru the winter, small odd jobs. I have a p/t job that lets me work when I want, for example in the winter, any day that does'nt snow I go in and work. If it snows, I plow and they know that I won't be in. In the summer any day that rains I can go in for a minimum of 4 hours, believe me this helps out big time and I still have time to do alot of my own stuff, blade sharpening, tune-ups etc. The guys do pretty much the same thing, they get p/t jobs and work with me on small winter jobs, Gutter cleaning, painting, holiday light hanging,
basement clean-outs etc.

My guys like being off in the winter to do whatever they want to do....Of course they rent from me and live for free during the off season (iI even pay their utilities for them.....really no expenses for them other than food and drink)....Of course they can do some PT work w/ me if they want but they mostly o all winter w/o work for the most part.
