    Check out some of these hourly wages. How often have you found yourself paying a foreman $52.34 an hour!!!!

    Pretty amazing.

    Landscaper ambivalent on immigration issues - Because it is a government contractor, Smallwood’s company, Diversified Landscape, is required to pay prevailing wages as calculated by the state Department of Industrial Relations. Experienced laborers earn $34.24 an hour; untrained “tenders” make $14.17. Each worksite is required to have an equal number of laborers and tenders.

    Landscapers who work for private clients, pay much less – about $8.50 an hour to start. But Smallwood’s higher wages don’t seem to be helping her much.

    “Our difficulty in hiring is horrible,” says Cathy Gurney of Sierra Landscape & Maintenance in Chico, north of Sacramento. “We’ve been advertising for a supervisor, which would pay $15 to $25 an hour with full benefits. No one qualified is applying.”

    On a recent job that went into overtime, a Diversified Landscape foreman was making $52.34 an hour.

    Like we stated before, I would drop what I was doing right now to take that kind of money. It's just people are lazy anymore, and they don't want to put in a good does work.

        Here, I have at least three people calling me a month out of the blue just asking if I am hiring.

          Maybe then much of this is regional?

            That is what I am thinking. Every year I always have people calling for work. Even when I would do postings in the newspapers for work years ago I probably received around 20-30 applications.
