They are suggesting that paying someone 12-15 hr that can do that stuff, weld, plumb and work on tractors and skid steer tires, maintain utvs, etc etc isn't near enough.

Fast food starts at 16hr some places.

Good luck in your search. Location?

I think others are viewing this as a unicorn type employee looking to do what you are asking. $12 x 2000 hours is $24K which not counting benefits, would basically be poverty level income at this point (for a full time employee adult). if you can offer housing or benefits, that would be a different story.

BTW, Amazon is hiring for $18 to $20/hour for basic warehouse sort leading up to the holidays (EXTREMELY low skilled work).

They've been talking about that for 20 years but it probably isn't too far out now. DR horton just started a sub division on the north side of town, I'm hearing talks of another in the planning stages just north east of town that is about 900 acres and another between Pilot Point and the Tally that is supposed to be a gated golf course community. Toll road extension is probably already taking place on the Tally. I know they are working north of there.

We're getting overrun and I'm not thrilled about it.

We’re paying 19 year olds more than that to train in HVAC/R if they’ll show up to work consistently and don’t do drugs. Might be viable to get an unskilled hand and hire local contractors for specific jobs. Best of luck on the search!

$15 an hour without perks is a ridiculous request for the desired skills. It's so weird to hear people complain that their businesses cant find good workers, but the next words out of their mouth are they're paying $12-15 an hour (who are you kidding).. which after taxes and typical expenses (cell phone, rent, food) is less than $100 leftover at the end of the month. It's not a popular opinion, but you need to pay more. If that means charging more for your business services, then so be it. If you can't make it after that, it's time to start looking for a new way to make a living.

Some will tell ya how thin the margins are yet they themselves sure wouldn’t work that cheap but expect others to for some reason. And then they treat their employees like trash and play ridiculous games and such. I’ve seen a lot of it first hand. And then there’s the really fun part when you have the crap that goes on between married couples (the owners) and employees get caught between that. Husband tells employees one thing and then wife demands employees do something different and then there’s conflict. Or the wife throws a screaming, dramatic fit over what the employees are doing because of the husband’s instructions. Sometimes the husband will flip things and not admit he ever gave permission for an employee to do it. There are all kinds of cruel games that get played on employees out on ranches. Evil things do happen.

Unfortunately, I don’t think it is.

This year in the winter/ spring my wife wanted me to look @ something more local , had a great interview and it was very close to home . Then we got to the compensation part, it was , 3 10’s , 2 6’s & 1 4hr shift’s , starting pay $14 per hour with a bump to $18 after 90 days
I asked if they were joking ( they were not ) , it’s easy to why things are all messed up right now
I stayed self employed and they can hire me on contract

Usually these big ranch’s have living quarters to stay in which if you didn’t have houses expenses then it could possibly work out. Even then I’d never work for that unless it had crazy good perks

HAHAHAHA! This thread is funny.

First thing I thought after reading was, did we go back in time?

Was also waiting for an update saying it comes with room and board, vehicle, unlimited hunting at several locations, clothing and tool allowances and ranch credit card for anything else that is needed. lol

I suppose someone will take it eventually, but might not have a green card.
