Earlier this year I made a guys hands bleed, when he had to wheel barrow 45 yards of mulch around. I fired him for working to slow. My guys get twice as much done alone than they do when I am scheduled with them. Why?? Cause I have better things to do than shovel dirt. I have to answer 50 phone calls a day and this tends to slow things down a bit. Also, I paid my dues and now I have people to do that crap for me. Lower your starting rate and make your idiots earn their pay checks. Then give raises due to exemplery service. I also find that being an ass and and not letting them get away with slow work is very effective. I can replace any one who works for me. I don't want to , but I can.
