We pay our labor $9.00 an hour and those in charge of the crew $12.00. Although I do have friends that pay less.

We started out paying by the hour, but switched to paying a percentage after a couple of months. We found that with this system, everyone ended up making more (including the company) because our daily production increased. The rate per hour using this system ranges from 8 to 12 per hour per man.
